7/6/2012: QNHS Q1 2012 - Public Sector

In the previous post I covered some data for the public sector employment based on the main tables in QNHS dataset.

Interestingly, data suggests that reduction of public sector employment in health and education has been offset by increases in private sector employment in these sub-sectors (see previous post for more detailed analysis of total employment in these sub-sectors). This might be due to staff substitution and early retirees coming back via private sector.

Table below summarizes the data:
