Notes for editors
- At this time, it is still not possible to provide an accurate de-duplicated headcount figure, so information relating to the characteristics of the workforce (for example, age, gender, ethnicity and nationality), which would normally be shown as headcount have been provided as full-time equivalent (FTE) figures.
- For those IHPs whose data is extracted from the Electric Staff Record (ESR), the individual organisations are identified, for those organisations which submit their data directly via the workforce Minimum Dataset Collection Vehicle (wMDSCV) the publication does not reveal the identity of the individual organisations as per the current agreement with the data submitters.
- The quarterly vacancy figures provided are based on the number of vacancies at the end of the respective quarter, so Q1 2019/20 would be reported vacancies at the end of June 2019. The guidance provided is that only active vacancies at the end of the reporting month are included in the collection, however, it is not possible to identify how long the respective vacancy has been live, or how many new vacancies have gone live within the month. The aim of this data is to understand the current workforce gap rather than any other vacancy related measure, such as average length of vacancy or vacancies advertised per month.
- It is possible for organisations to amend their data within the financial year to reflect any data quality improvements within their systems. Under normal circumstances data is therefore finalised for the financial year as at quarter 4 (end of March). There may be exceptional circumstances when data is updated for a previous financial year, therefore the latest publication in the series should always be referred to for the most up to date data.
