*Full-time defined as employees working more than 30 paid hours per week (or 25 or more for the teaching professions).
** Due to classification changes in 2010, there is a discontinuity from 2010 to 2011. The 2011 figure used is that using the latest (2010) classifications. This makes the 2011 figure 6 pence lower than if the older classification had been used.
*** Figures for 2017 are provisional.
