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.
