Mr. Frank Field: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster how many (a) males, (b) females, (c) foreign nationals and (d) individuals have been in (i) public sector employment, (ii) private sector employment and (iii) employment in each year since 1978. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking how many (a) males, (b) females, (c) foreign nationals and (d) individuals have been in (i) public sector employment, (ii) private sector employment and (iii) employment in each year since 1978. (246806)
The available information requested is provided in the attached table. Comparable estimates prior to 1995 are not available.
The estimates are derived from the Labour Force Survey (LFS). These estimates are based on the respondents views about the organisation for which they work. They do not correspond to official Public Sector Employment estimates, which come directly from employers and are based on National Accounts definitions.
As with any sample survey, estimates from the LFS are subject to a margin of uncertainty.
The figures have been derived from the LFS microdata which are weighted using the official population estimates published in autumn 2007. Consequently the estimates from Q3 2006 onwards are not entirely consistent with the figures published in the monthly Labour Market Statistics First Release, or the migrant worker figures published every quarter, which are weighted using more up-to-date population estimates.

|(1) It should be noted that public and private sector estimates,|
are based on survey respondents views about the organisation for which they work;
do not correspond to the National Accounts definition used for Public Sector Employment estimates.
(2 )Includes nationalised industry or state corporation, central Government, civil service, local government or council (incl. police, fire services and local authority controlled schools or colleges), university or other grant funded educational establishment, health authority or NHS trust and armed forces.
(3) Includes self-employed and unpaid family workers.
(4) Includes those whose type of employer was not known.
(5) Coefficients of Variation have been calculated for the latest period as an indication of the quality of the estimates, as described below.
Guide to Quality:
The Coefficient of Variation (CV) indicates the quality of an estimate, the smaller the CV value the higher the quality. The true value is likely to lie within +/- twice the CVfor example, for an estimate of 200 with a CV of 5 per cent. we would expect the population total to be within the range 180-220.
Key Coefficient of Variation (CV) (%) Statistical robustness
* 0 = CV <5 Estimates are considered precise.
** 5 = CV <10 Estimates are considered reasonably precise.
*** 10 = CV <20 Estimates are considered acceptable.
**** CV = 20 Estimates are considered too unreliable for practical purposes.
It should be noted that the above estimates exclude people in most types of communal establishment (e.g. hotels, boarding houses, hostels, mobile home sites etc.)
Labour Force Survey
Mr. Clappison: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what estimate he has made of the number of inward migrants to the UK (a) from other EU member states and (b) from non-EU member states intending to stay for 12 months or more who cited work-related purposes as the main reason for migration in each of the last four quarters for which figures are available. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to respond to your question concerning what estimate has been made of the number of inward migrants to the UK (a) from other EU member states and (b) from non-EU member states intending to stay 12 months or more who cited work-related purposes as the main reason for migration in each of the last four quarters for which figures are available. (243965)
Table 1, attached, gives an estimate of international immigration from other EU member states and non-EU member states for work-related reasons for the latest year available, 2007, by quarter.
This table is based solely on data from the International Passenger Survey.
