1 to 7 703.0 1.0 0.1

1. The figures do not include staff with disabilities who choose not to register or chose not to disclose their registration.

2. The figures do not include registered disabled people employed under the sheltered placement scheme.

3. For each grade, all non-industrial staff in equivalent grades are included.

4. The figures for grades 1 to 7 have been grouped together as the numbers of registered disabled staff in these grades are very small and they risk identifying an individual.

5. All figures are full-time equivalents.
