Scottish Social Services Workforce Data
This part of the website allows you to create your own charts and tables using the data we have available on those in paid employment in the sector. It is the same data that is used in the SSSC’s annual reports on the sector’s workforce. You can find a list of definitions to help you with any terms that you haven't heard before. Click the need some help link on the right to learn how to use this page.
Please note that the 2008 data in the explore the data section does not include figures for the number of childminders in work that year. This is because the data was only available to us at a national level and could not be broken down by local authority area. The figure for childminders in 2008 was published in the workforce data report for that year and was 5,580. This will add to both the headcount and number of services (each individual childminder service has a single childminder).
