Description

People are classed as 'in employment' (employee or self-employed) if they have done at least one hour of paid work in the week prior to their LFS interview. The self employed ratio is the number of people who are self employed (16+) divided by the number of people in employment (16+).

The data used for this indicator is taken from the Annual Population Survey (APS). The APS was introduced in January 2004 and it has replaced the Annual Local Area Labour Force Survey. The APS combines results from the Labour Force Survey ( LFS) and the English, Welsh and Scottish Labour Force Survey boosts. The boosts increase the sample size which means the APS can provide more robust labour market estimates for local areas compared to the main LFS. Thus the APS is the primary source for information on local labour markets providing headline estimates on employment, unemployment and economic activity. The APS is the largest annual household survey in Scotland and provides a wealth of information about individuals' personal circumstances and their work. The LFS surveys individuals living at private households in the UK and is designed to be representative of the national population. The Scottish Government funds the boost to the LFS sample in Scotland, taking the sample size from approximately 8,000 households for the each year to 23,000 households.

Details
Confidentiality Policy

This dataset does not contain any sensitive or personal information.

Quality Management

Details on the methodology and quality assurance of Annual Population Survey data can be found on the ONS website

Accuracy and Reliability

Where the estimate is unreliable (i.e. the group sample size or estimate is small) or the group sample size is zero or disclosive (0-2), the data has been removed.

Coherence and Comparability

The Scottish Government publishes reports which present analysis on the labour market at Scotland and sub-Scotland levels. Note that this data is not seasonally adjusted and comparisons should only be made with the same quarter across years.

Accessibility and Clarity

Statistics from the APS are presented in reports and spreadsheets available on the Scottish Goverment's website.

Relevance

The Annual Population Survey (APS) combines results from the Labour Force Survey (LFS) and the English, Welsh and Scottish Labour Force Survey boosts increasing the sample size in Scotland, which means the APS can provide more robust labour market estimates compared to the main Labour Force Survey, for local areas and smaller groups of the population.

Timeliness and Punctuality

This dataset is updated quarterly.

Revisions

In April 2019, APS data for Scotland was reweighted to 2016 population estimates. Consequently estimates for previous years (from 2012 through to 2018) may differ from previously released results.
