John Healey: The information requested falls within the responsibility of the National Statistician who has been asked to reply.
Letter from Colin Mowl, dated 30 January 2006:
The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Questions about private and public sector employment. I am replying in her absence. (46078)
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) compiles statistics for the United Kingdom of public sector employment from a quarterly survey of public sector organisations. However, estimates at local area level are not available.
Information at local area level is available from the annual local area Labour Force Survey (LFS) of individual people in households. However, in this source the categorisation of employment in the public or private sector depends upon the responses from the individuals interviewed. As reported by ONS in October 2005 in the publication Public Sector Employment Trends", some individuals tend to misreport private sector employment as being in the public sector hence leading to overestimates of the share of public sector employment.
With this reservation about the data quality, Table 1 shows the number of persons in private sector employment, by the specified splits, and for the public sector for people resident in the Denbighshire Unitary Authority as shown by the annual local area LFS for the 12 month periods ending February 1999 to February 2004. Table 2 shows similar data for persons resident in the Vale of Clwyd Parliamentary Constituency. Data for earlier years are not available.
These estimates, as with any from sample surveys, are subject to a margin of uncertainty. Changes in the estimates from year to year should be treated with particular caution.
