Prior to November 2010 the Shared Service provision for Human Resource in the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) was provided by two suppliers with data maintained in differing formats. Therefore data in a consistent format is only available from November 2010.

From November 2010 to January 2014, 56% of civil servants who were been recruited to DECC have declared diversity data. Of those who have declared diversity data, 78% have declared that they are white British and 13% have declared that they are from a minority ethnic background.

The remaining 9% are other white backgrounds.
