General description
Last update: March 2017
Source: Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) Staff Record.
Contact: Post16Ed.stats@wales.gsi.gov.uk

The new record covers all academic and non-academic staff who have a contract of employment with a Higher Education Institution (HEI) in the UK.

Note that the figures for Welsh HEIs include staff and finance data for the University of Wales Registry. Staff figures relate to staff with contracts active at December 1st of the academic year in question.

The Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) collect data on students, staff and resources of higher education institutions (HEIs) in the UK. Further information about HESA and their data collections, including some online tables, can be found on their website www.hesa.ac.uk

Rounding strategy
The presentation of figures in this table follows the principals of the HESA rounding strategy. The strategy is intended to prevent the disclosure of personal information about any individual. This strategy involves rounding all numbers to the nearest 5. A summary of this strategy is as follows:
· 0, 1, 2 are rounded to 0 and represented as '*'.
· All other numbers are rounded to the nearest 5

Total figures are also subject to this rounding methodology; the consequence of which is that the sum of numbers in each row or column may not match the total shown precisely.

Data reference periods
The Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA) collects data on students, staff and resources of higher education institutions (HEIs) in the UK. The data presented in this bulletin is taken from HESA's Staff Record which contains information on staff employed at UK HEIs. Further information about HESA and their data collections can be found via the weblinks.

Rounding applied
The presentation of figures in this table follows the principals of the HESA rounding strategy. The strategy is intended to prevent the disclosure of personal information about any individual. This strategy involves rounding all numbers to the nearest 5. A summary of this strategy is as follows:
· 0, 1, 2 are rounded to 0 and represented as '*'.
· All other numbers are rounded to the nearest 5

Total figures are also subject to this rounding methodology; the consequence of which is that the sum of numbers in each row or column may not match the total shown precisely.

Statistical quality
Figures are based on the HESA Staff Record. Data is required for all academic staff, and for non-academic staff if the contract is not atypical. Data also need not be returned for agency staff, self-employed staff, honorary contracts where the contract is not deemed to be a contract of employment and staff not employed by the HEI, but by a company consolidated into the HEI's accounts.

More information on the staff record for 2015/16 can be found in the HESA Staff in Higher Education definitions.

Between 2014/15 and 2015/16 the University of South Wales reported a significant drop in staff numbers. This was due to a combination of normal contractual changes and turnover of employees, limited institutional restructuring, a combination of HR and payroll systems, and a data cleansing exercise.
