S5W-10397: Jackie Baillie (Dumbarton)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 19 July 2017

To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-08107 by Keith Brown on 28 March 2017, whether it will request that the Office for National Statistics produces pay gap data on personal characteristics such as ethnicity and nationality.

Answered by: Jamie Hepburn 10 August 2017

A request has been sent to ONS on the 28th of July requesting Labour Force Survey (LFS) earnings and pay gap tables. We have requested:

1. Information on the ethnicity (white/Non-white) pay gap and the nationality (UK national/Non-UK national) pay gap for Scotland.

2. Pay estimates for white/non-white by gender and UK national/non-UK national by gender, so that the gender pay gap can also be calculated for these 2 groups.

Once the analysis has been performed, it will be made available on the Scottish Government website at: http://www.gov.scot/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Labour-Market/Earnings
