Workplace Employment by Industry in Wales, 2001 to 2006
The latest bulletin on workplace employment by industry in Wales produced by the Welsh Assembly Government was released on 23 July 2008 according to the arrangements approved by the UK Statistics Authority.
This bulletin is based on statistics from three different sources that are already in the public domain, and provides estimates of workplace employment (or total jobs) in Wales. The analyses presented cover the aggregate of employees, the self employed and government supported trainees at a broad industrial level in Wales, with estimates also presented at sub-Wales levels. By also including detail over time, the bulletin increases the information publicly available on jobs in Wales.
The key results are as follows.
- In 2006 there was a higher proportion of employment in health, education & public administration in Wales compared to the UK and a lower proportion in finance & business activities.
- Between 2001 and 2006 there were increases in employment in Wales in construction and across the service sectors. There were reductions in the production sectors. A similar pattern of change occurred across the UK as a whole.
- Comparing areas within Wales, West Wales and the Valleys had a higher proportion of jobs in health, education & public administration than East Wales and a lower proportion of jobs in finance & business activities.
- There was substantial variation in the distribution of workplace employment between industries at the local authority level in Wales.
- Workplace employment in Wales increased by 8 per cent between 2001 and 2007, compared with a 5per cent increase across the UK as a whole.
