Dataset:Public sector employment
23 March 2021
The total employment and private sector series included in this publication are derived from the Labour Force Survey (LFS). LFS responses are weighted to official 2018-based population projections on demographic trends that pre-date the coronavirus pandemic. In our Coronavirus and the impact on payroll employment article we analyse the population totals used in the LFS weighting process and state our intention to make adjustments. Rates published from the LFS remain robust; however, levels and changes in levels should be used with caution.
