Public Sector: Manpower
Nick Hurd (Parliamentary Secretary (Civil Society), Cabinet Office; Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner, Conservative)
The information requested falls within the responsibility of the UK Statistics Authority. I have asked the authority to reply.
Letter from Stephen Penneck, dated April 2012
As Director General for the Office for National Statistics, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking what the ratio of male to female workers in each public sector occupation in the West Midlands is. (106251)
Public sector employment statistics for local areas can be calculated from the Annual Population Survey (APS). Individuals in the APS are classified to the public or private sector according to their responses to the survey.
Table 1 as follows shows the percentage of male and female workers in the public sector in each Standard Occupational Classification 2010 ( SOC2010 ) Main Job Group for their main job in the West Midlands for the 12 month period, ending in September 2011, the latest available period.
As with any sample survey, estimates from the APS are subject to a margin of uncertainty.
National and local area estimates for many labour market statistics, including employment, unemployment and claimant count are available on the NOMIS website at:
