As the demand increases for statistics and data to measure the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to change our data gathering and release practices, focussing efforts on priority analysis and statistics. https://gov.wales/statistics-and-research

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 collection and calculation

Source: Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA)

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.
Staff with a contract full-time equivalent (FTE) of zero are not counted in this population.

Frequency of publication

Annual

Data reference periods

The HESA staff contract population includes contracts that were active on 1 December within the reporting period.

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.

Revisions on the number of staff teaching in Welsh have been submitted, direct to Welsh Government, by Cardiff and Swansea (academic year 2017/18). Equivalent revisions are yet to be submitted to HESA who are the source of data for this table. Therefore, please note that the figures shown here for the number of staff teaching in Welsh for Cardiff and Swansea are not to be relied upon.
