1 To calculate the percentage of people who joined the service, we need to use the total number of starts (10,267) that resulted from all referrals received during the period to 29 March 2019, rather than the total number of starts (10,063) with a recorded start date on FSS during the same period. 

2  Data taken from Table 2.1 of “Regional Employment Patterns in Scotland: Statistics from the Annual Population Survey 2018”, published here.

3  The numbers of sustained job outcomes (991) shown here differs very slightly from that in the published tables (990) since the two figures are derived from separate administrative systems. See the background information section for details.
