Use this page to find constituency data about public sector employees. Employee data is workplace-based, so shows the number of employees working rather than living in each constituency.

A high number and proportion of public sector employees in an area may reflect the presence of a large public sector employer (for example, if the constituency contains a large hospital).

The public sector figures include employees working in central government, local authorities and public corporations but do not include HM Forces.

Use the drop-down menu below to select the constituency you’re interested in and view statistics.

If you would like to access this information in an alternative format please email and we will review your request.


Data at a local level is less reliable because of small sample sizes. This means that small differences between years or between constituencies could be due to survey error.

Data updates

We aim to update this dashboard annually in September, in line with data releases from the Office for National Statistics (ONS). MPs and their staff can contact the Commons Library with queries about updates.
