General description
This table summarises information on the directly employed staff of social services departments in Wales. Local authorities also provide services using the independent sector, whose staff are not included in these figures.

Data collection and calculation
The data were supplied to the Data Collection team within the Welsh Government by the 22 local authorities in Wales on the Staffing data collection form. The form applies an extensive series of validation checks to ensure that the information provided is accurate and consistent.

Whole-time equivalent staff numbers are based on contractual hours, rather than those actually worked on the census day. Whole-time equivalents should be calculated on the basis of 39 (contractual) hours per week for care assistants, manual and domestic staff, and 37 hours for other staff. For part-time staff their whole-time equivalent is calculated by dividing contractual hours by 39 or 37 as appropriate.

Revisions information
The number of full-time social workers in Pembrokeshire in 2017-18 has been revised since previously published. This has impacted the Wales total.

Statistical quality
For the year 2014-15 onwards, the STF return was based on a revised Qualification Framework - http://www.ccwales.org.uk/edrms/133863/ . Therefore only limited comparisons with previous years can be made.

Social work trainees do not have required or recommended qualifications. Due to this fact, and missing data for a small number of LAs in respect of qualifications, the total of full and part time staff at the Wales level sometimes exceeds the total of those with required and recommended qualifications and other staff. A similar issue with missing data affects the Welsh language speaking subsets of these data.

Please find further information in the related statistical publication, or alongside further information on quality and methods in the Quality Report, as per the given weblinks.
