Public sector employment in Scotland [June 2013]

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Inevitably interest focusses on the recent trends in public sector employment; however once again, the themes of cuts, capacity and targets are indicative of more significant current and medium term issues affecting the public sector.
Public sector employment (based on headcount and excluding public sector financial institutions) rose between 1999 and 2006, but since 2006 has declined by 48,000. Although the movement of local authority staff both in and out of arm's length organizations, typically charities, continues to make comparisons slightly harder.
