The information requested falls within the responsibility of the UK Statistics Authority. I have asked the Authority to reply.
Letter from Peter Fullerton, dated September 2013
In the absence of the Director General for the Office for National Statistics (ONS), I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Questions to the Minister for the Cabinet Office asking, how many jobs created in Scotland since 2010 are part-time (169110) and how many jobs created in Scotland since 2010 are in the manufacturing sector (169112).
Information regarding the number of jobs created is not available. However, the ONS' Workforce Jobs statistics provides estimates on the number of jobs in Scotland, that are part-time and in the manufacturing sector. Net change in jobs between June 2010 and June 2013 has been provided.
|Change in workforce jobs in Scotland since 2010|
|Part-time jobs—not seasonally adjusted||Manufacturing—seasonally adjusted|
|Net change between June 2010 and June 2013||58,000||16,000|
|Note: Estimates of jobs by industry sector are adjusted for seasonal factors. Estimates of jobs by full-time/part-time status are only available without adjustment for seasonal factors. Source: Workforce Jobs, ONS|
