Notes:
1. Workforce jobs figures are a measure of jobs rather than people. For example, if a person holds two jobs, each job will be counted in the workforce jobs total.
2. Workforce jobs figures come from a variety of sources, and where possible, from the employer rather than the individual. Employee jobs (which is much the largest component of workforce jobs) come from quarterly surveys of employers carried out by ONS.
3. Other data sources are as follows:
Self-employment jobs are provided by the Labour Force Survey
HM Forces figures are provided by the Ministry of Defence (MOD)
Government-supported trainees are provided from Administrative Sources.
