Table 2.2 shows the pupil teacher ratios (PTRs) in publicly funded schools for all sectors (excluding pre-schools). PTRs give, on a comparable basis, a measure of the size of the workforce given the different sizes of the pupil population. Scotland saw an improving pupil teacher ratio in local authority schools, with less pupils per teacher between 2005 and 2008. From 2008 it increased gradually to reach 13.5 in 2011, and it has remained at this level since then. The increase in PTR is partly due to the increase in the proportion of pupils in the primary sector, which has larger PTRs. Figures vary across local authorities over time. The largest increases in PTRs this year were seen in Glasgow City and Dundee City, the largest decreases in PTRs were seen in Orkney Islands and Midlothian. 2005 level).
