Brian- congratulations on the blog which I'm already finding an invaluable resource. One probably rather daft question; in working out the employment to working age pop ratio,what source do you use for working age population?

Brian Ashcroft


Thanks for your supportive comments.

I do not have a direct source for Scottish working population. However, I compute it for each quarter by taking - from the ONS Regional Data release for Scotland - the number economically active, dividing into it the economic activity rate, then multiplying by 100.
