Annual Business Inquiry 2007: Employee Jobs
ONS do not produce a statistical release of ABI employment data on their own website, although some of the employment data are included in the analysis of the related financial data collected via the Annual Business Inquiry part 2.
The key points from the latest data are:
- In 2007 there were 1.187 million employee jobs in Wales, 0.2 per cent higher than the figure of 1.185 million in 2006 and 10.9 per cent higher than the figure of 1.070 million in 1999. For Great Britain as a whole there was an increase of 0.9 per cent between 2006 and 2007 and an increase of 7.1 per cent between 1999 and 2007.
- There was an increase in eight of the regions and countries in Great Britain between 2006 and 2007, with Wales having the smallest increase of the eight. The increase in Wales between 1999 and 2007 was the 4th highest, behind the South West, the East Midlands and Scotland.
- The increase in Wales between 2006 and 2007 was spread across a number of industry sectors, with the highest absolute increase in the public administration sector (up 8,000), with the largest fall in the construction, health and other services sectors (all down 3,000).
- In 2007, the retail, wholesale, motor trades and repairs sector was the largest in Wales, accounting for 16.4 per cent of all employee jobs, followed by 14.7 per cent in the health and social work sector and 13.6 per cent in the manufacturing sector.
The ABI employee jobs dataset includes data at a local authority level, and the detailed dataset on StatsWales has been updated to include the 2007 data for Wales by broad industry heading, including a local authority breakdown.
