Notes:

1. The information in this table is not national statistics. See http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Labour-Market/PublicSectorEmployment/PSEByAge for information about this collection.

2. Youth employment levels rounded to the nearest 10.

3. Total employment levels rounded to the nearest 100, with the exception of local government and public corporation figures.

4. Police and Fire Reform: Some of the change on year estimates will be affected by reclassification of organisations as a result of reforms to the police and fire services in Scotland. From Q2 2013 Police and Fire Services have been reclassified as central government rather than local government. This reclassification has had an impact on the staffing numbers in both these categories. Also, for Q1 2014 onwards staffing levels for the Scottish Police Authority (previously Scottish Police Services Authority) are included within the Police and Fire Services category in the table above (previously included in other public bodies).

5. Information for NHS is taken from previously released data from ISD, published on 5th June 2018. See http://www.isdscotland.org/Health-Topics/Workforce/

6. The Total Devolved Public Sector figures include an estimate for youth employment within further education colleges, based on existing information.

7. The Public Corporations and Total Devolved Public Sector figures include an estimate for youth employment within Registered Social Landlords, based on existing information.
