General description

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:
• Numbers less than 2.5 are rounded to 0.
• 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

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.
Atypical staff are excluded from the data. Atypical staff are those members of staff whose contracts involve working arrangements that are not permanent, involve complex employment relationships and/or involve work away from the supervision of the normal work provider.
Staff with a contract full-time equivalent (FTE) of zero are not counted in this population.

Data reference periods

The HESA staff contract session population is an indicator of those contracts that are active during the HESA reporting period. Full-time equivalent (FTE) data is based on the HESA academic staff contract session population and is counted using the population of staff who were active at any point during the reporting period.

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.

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.

In 2023, an inconsistency was identified between our method for calculating full-time equivalents (FTE) and HESA’s. This resulted in an under-reporting of the number of FTE academic staff compared to the HESA data. A method consistent with HESA’s has now been implemented, with data revised back to 2012/13. Data for 2010/11 and 2011/12 has been removed due to issues with replicating HESA figures.

In 2023, an inconsistency was identified between our method for grouping cost centres and HESA’s. Data has been revised back to 2012/13 to align with cost centre groupings used by HESA from 2012/13.
