1. Figures have been rounded to the nearest hundred except for the change on year for Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal. Percentages are based on unrounded figures.
2. From Q4 2011, NHS has responsibility for employing Healthcare staff within prisons. Previously, these people were employed directly by the Scottish Prison Service (SPS). In Q2 2012 1,491 & 1062.1 FTE / headcount staff transferred from Highland Council to NHS Highland.
3. The decrease in Scottish Government Agencies is mainly due to Historic Scotland is no longer part of the civil service. In Q4 2015, Historic Scotland merged with the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland to become Historic Environment Scotland, a non-departmental public body.
