Annex C - Scottish Government, Agencies and Other Bodies - New and promoted staff diversity data

The tables in this Annex show the diversity statistics for Scottish Government employees who were recruited or promoted in the period 1 February 2014 to 31 December 2014.

Note that due to the change in the reporting timetable the latest figures are for an 11-month period.

Coverage

Along with the core Scottish Government, the statistics in this annex include the following public bodies: Accountant in Bankruptcy, Advocate General for Scotland, British Irish Council, Courts Tribunals, Court of Lord Lyon, Crofting Commission, Disclosure Scotland, Edinburgh Tram Inquiry, Education Scotland, HMI Constabulary, HMI Prisons, Inspectorate of Prosecution in Scotland, Judicial Appointments Board for Scotland, Local Government Boundary Commission for Scotland, Mental Welfare Commission, National Records of Scotland, Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator, Office of the Scottish Road Works Commissioner, Parole Board, Police Investigations & Review Commissioner, Risk Management Authority, Scotland Office, Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission, Scottish Housing Regulator, Scottish Law Commission, Scottish Public Pensions Agency, Student Awards Agency for Scotland, Transport Scotland.

New recruits

Employees in the following categories are reported:

Permanent staff; fixed-term appointments; inward loans; modern apprenticeships; and paid student placements. In the tables, the non-permanent categories are grouped and shown as 'others'.

Promotions

The promotions reported here relate predominantly to permanent staff. A small number of fixed-term appointments were promoted but the figures are too small to be shown separately without encountering data disclosure issues.

Disclosure control

To avoid the possible disclosure of information about individual members of staff, data suppression has been applied to counts of less than 5 (and the corresponding percentage value). In some cases, secondary data suppression has been necessary to prevent the calculation of suppressed values by differencing. Suppressed values are shown as an asterisk (*). Where possible, data suppression has been avoided by grouping categories in some manner. Where the only small counts in a table refer to the 'prefer not to say' category, no data suppression is done. Where data suppression has been applied in any table an explanatory note is provided.

Tables

The tables show the diversity data for staff who were recruited or promoted in the period 1 February 2014 to 31 December 2014 (an 11-month period), along with summary data for two earlier 12-month periods to give trend information. The latest recruitment data is broken down into 'permanent' and 'other' staff.

The previous version of the publication reported on the data for the period 1 February 2012 to 31 January 2013. These tables were updated (but not published at the time) with data for the period 1 February 2013 to 31 January 2014. The summary data for these two periods are included in the tables. It is intended that future publications of this report will use data as at 31 December each year and will revert to a 12-month period in future editions of this report.

The tables contain staff headcounts and row percentages - that is, the percentage of the total number of new recruits or promotions in each category (for example, in each of the age groups 16-29, 30-39, and so on). The sum of the percentages in each row will be 100%.

Data source

The tables in this workbook were compiled from data held on the Scottish Government HR system. Information on the protected characteristics (age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability status, marital/civil partnership status, and religion or belief) is provided by the employee on a voluntary basis. For some protected characteristics (for example, age and gender) the information held is complete or very nearly complete, while the information held for other characteristics is less well populated.
