Scottish Social Services Workforce Data
Experimental Statistics: Whole Time Equivalent Data for the Scottish Social Service Workforce
This report and our experimental statistics report on staff retention are the first in a new series of reports intended to explore and examine more fully the workforce data available to the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC).
This data has not been published previously as part of our annual Official Statistics report on the sector’s workforce, as there have been doubts about the quality of the data available. However, because of requests for us to publish data on whole time equivalents, we are publishing this data as a set of Experimental Statistics.
Experimental Statistics are Official Statistics under development. This means that the data is published to obtain the views of stakeholders on the value and suitability of the Statistics for future inclusion in our annual workforce data report.
At the end of the report you will find a link to a short questionnaire on Survey Monkey. The questionnaire will be available until mid-June 2016.
