Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 6 October 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what gender-disaggregated data on the economy it collects, and what plans it has to fill any data gap.

Answered by: Keith Brown 27 October 2016

Within the Economy Theme the Scottish Government holds a range of gender-disaggregated data on the Labour Market including: The Labour Force Survey, Annual Population Survey and the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings. The Scottish Government also collects information on employment in local government by gender. These sources provide gender disaggregated estimates of economic status and earnings alongside a range of other socio-economic characteristics.

Further information disaggregated by gender is published on the Scottish Government Equality Evidence Finder.

The Scottish Government reviews statistical data requirements on the Economy through the Scottish Economic Statistics Consultants Group and fills evidence gaps where required.
