highlights key trends in civil service staffing for the period up
to 1 April 2000. Alongside the main publication a summary handout,
Key Figures on Civil Service Statistics, is produced containing
the internet. Further tables containing diversity information are
also being made available on the internet as from today. As part of
our strategy to develop the internet for future publication, tables
previously published in the Equal Opportunities in the Civil
Service Data Summary will no longer be published in paper form.
This publication is based on headline figures that were originally
published on 29 November 2000, and includes a large amount of
previously unseen information and detailed analyses.
Civil Service Statistics 2000 provides more detail about:
* numbers of permanent and casual civil servants in each department
* numbers of civil servants by gender, ethnic origin and disability
* numbers of entrants to and leavers from the Civil Service
* numbers of civil servants by location, responsibility level and
* the age structure of civil servants
