Scottish Social Services Workforce Data
Scottish social services sector: report on 2010 workforce data
This is the third workforce data report published by the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC). The report combines data from the Scottish Government’s annual census of staff in local authority social work services with data from the annual returns collected by the Care Inspectorate from all registered care providers. The data presented in this report were gathered in late 2010.
The report provides a detailed overview of the data at a national level and, where possible, also provides data at the sub-sector or local authority area. The presentation of the data is similar to the approach adopted in the two previous reports for the 2008 and 2009 data (SSSC, 2010 and 2011a). In addition to the report, more detailed tables will be available from the SSSC Workforce Solutions Portal in February 2012, which will provide a breakdown of the numbers of people working in all sub-sectors and service types within individual local authority areas.
