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 the other characteristics is less well populated.

Leavers in period 1/2/12 to 31/1/13, by work pattern and reason

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.

  • 2% of staff recruited during the year identified as coming from a minority ethnic background. No ethnicity data are held for a large number of new starts (64%).
  • 2% of staff recruited during the year declared a disability. No disability data are held on the majority of new starts (88%).
  • Due to the small numbers of staff recording their sexual orientation or religious beliefs, no analysis is possible of these factors beyond that given in the tables.

Promotions

  • The majority of promotions went to permanent members of staff during the period (95%).
  • The age group with the highest number of promotions was 30-39 years old (41%).
  • More women than men were promoted during the year (56%).
  • Approximately 2% of promotions went to staff with a recorded minority ethnic background.
  • Staff with a recorded disability received 3% of the promotions during the period.
  • Due to the small numbers of staff recording their sexual orientation or religious beliefs, no analysis is possible of these factors beyond that given in the tables.

Data Notes

  • Recruitment and promotion were both analysed by employment type and protected characteristic. Results for promotion were collapsed into "permanent" and "all other" categories to allow some analysis to be presented without disclosing small numbers.
  • To avoid the possible disclosure of information about individual members of staff, data suppression has been applied to counts of less than 5. 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 (*).
  • This commentary refers to the Equality Act Mainstreaming Report tables for recruitment and promotion within the Scottish Government. Data for new starts covers the period 01 February 2012 to 31 January 2013. Data for promotions covers the period 01 January 2012 to 31 December 2012 (the nearest full year analysis available). All data include Scottish Government Core Directorates and all Agencies, Non-Departmental Public Bodies, and Other Bodies (including National Records of Scotland) for which the Scottish Government provides HR Shared Services.
  • Figures include 33 National Records of Scotland new starts and 20 NRS promotions, as per other Equality Act reporting requests. Separate analysis of these NRS recruitments and promotions produces small numbers throughout. Once suppression has been applied to NRS specific results, the tables provided are of little to no value and are not included as a result.
  • New start data apply only to those taking up employment during the reporting period and do not cover failed applicants. HR are in negotiation with our external Applicant Tracking System providers to develop accurate and trustworthy reporting systems to gather this data in future.
  • As with data for current staff, levels of reporting for sexual orientation, ethnic origin and religion and belief are very low and analysis of these characteristics is therefore limited.
