LOCAL AUTHORITY STAFF WATCH SHOWS DECREASE

Figures published today show a year on year decrease of 260 full-time equivalent staff working in Scottish local authorities.

The December 2000 Joint Staffing Watch shows a total of 235,899 full-time equivalent staff, compared with the December 1999 figure of 236,159.

The figures also show a decrease of 326 full-time equivalent staff compared with September 2000. These figures have not been seasonally adjusted.

The new Joint Staffing Watch survey, released jointly by the Scottish executive and COSLA, began in 1996.

All figures above are shown to the nearest full-time equivalent. Therefore, figures may not calculate due to rounding.

Changes in staff numbers may arise as a result of a local authority service being provided by staff who are no longer on the payroll of the authority.

The report gives a detailed description of the results of the December 2000 survey, with comparison with earlier periods. It provides information on staffing levels in each council separately by grade of staff and service area.
