The Office for National Statistics publish much of this information each year by Civil Service organisation as part of their annual release of Civil Service statistics. The latest data set from 2016 can be found on the ONS website, available at:

Departmental breakdowns of the ethnicity and disability pay gaps are not published through the ONS and are not publicly available.

The Civil Service is committed to being a place where everyone can thrive, regardless of background- with the aim of becoming the most inclusive employer in the UK

Whilst it is encouraging to see a positive trajectory in terms of diversity representation in the Civil Service, we recognise that there is more to do. That is why in March 2016 the Government published its refreshed Talent Action Plan for the Civil Service, identifying actions to support our staff, increase diversity in the Civil Service and deliver the best possible public services.
