Presents Civil Service employment statistics, which provide regional analyses, diversity and earnings statistics for the Civil Service population.



  • Civil Service statistics

    Annual data on Civil Service employment in the UK, including gender, ethnicity, disability status, earnings and location of the Civil Service workforce. This dataset has now been transferred to the Cabinet Office.

  • Annex B: Median pay

    Annual data on Civil Service employment in the UK, showing the relationship between the salary of the highest-paid employee and median salary of all employees for each department. 

  • Annex A: Sexual orientation and religious beliefs

    Annual data on Civil Service employment in the UK, by sexual orientation and religion or belief.

  • Civil Service statistics data summary tool

    An interactive tool allowing users to compare government departments and the Civil Service average, including the split between men and women, full-time and part-time employees, permanent and temporary appointments and regional analysis.

The United Kingdom Statistics Authority has designated these statistics as National Statistics, in accordance with the Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007 and signifying compliance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.

Designation can be broadly interpreted to mean that the statistics:

  • meet identified user needs
  • are well explained and readily accessible
  • are produced according to sound methods
  • are managed impartially and objectively in the public interest

Once statistics have been designated as National Statistics it is a statutory requirement that the Code of Practice shall continue to be observed.
