Notes:

- x denotes estimates which are considered unreliable for practical purposes.

1. Covers employees on an adult rate of pay who have been in the same job for more than a year.

2. The estimates are from ‘workplace’-based analysis and therefore include all those who work in the constituency area regardless of where they live.
