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 or category grouping has been carried out in any table, an explanatory note is provided.

Charts

Where appropriate, charts have been included to illustrate the percentages in the tables. The charts show the work pattern breakdown, except in cases where data suppression has been necessary.
In these cases, the chart will show the percentage for each category for all employees.

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.

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 or category grouping has been carried out in any table, an explanatory note is provided.

Data source

The tables in this workbook were compiled from data held on the Scottish Government HR system.
