1. Paid parental leave refers to those on paid maternity, adoption, or shared parental leave.

2. These are included within the permanent category for the purposes of this publication. See notes for further details.

3. Competition refers to competition for the position at recruitment.

4. Note that numbers for the quarter ending March 2012 are 13 lower, and quarter ending June 2012 are 12 lower than the Office for National Statistics' ( ONS) Public Sector Employment numbers. This is because the ONS figures included staff from the Parole Board (Scotland). The Parole Board staff are excluded here as this publication only covers those in core Scottish Government directorates.
