- Statistics & Research
An annual report in which analyses presented cover the aggregate of employees, the self employed and government supported trainees at a broad industrial level.
- The distribution of workplace employment in Wales in 2012 was broadly similar to that in the UK for most industry sectors. There was a higher proportion of employment in Wales in public administration, defence, education & health (which is not the same as the public sector) and a lower proportion in finance & business activities.
- Between 2011 and 2012 workplace employment in Wales fell by 4,000. This was driven by falls in the transportation & storage sector, the manufacturing sector and the professional, scientific and technical activities sector. The UK increased by 1 per cent over this period. This was driven by increases in the professional, scientific & technical activities sector and the administrative & support service activities sectors.
- In 2012 there was substantial variation in the distribution of workplace employment between industries at the local authority level in Wales. The largest differences were in the production sector, where the percentage in employment varied from 4 per cent in Conwy to 27 per cent in Flintshire, and the public administration, defence, education & health sector, where the percentage in employment varied from 19 per cent in Flintshire to 39 per cent in Torfaen.
- Workplace employment in Wales increased by 5 per cent between 2001 and 2012, this was slightly less than the increase across the UK (up 6 per cent).
