Data on public sector employment by constituency is published annually in the Business Register and Employment Survey. This note summerises the most recent data for 2015.

More timely regional data are available from the ONS public sector employment bulletin. This is the recommended source for public sector employment statistics, but does not provide data below a regional level. These show that in 2016, 5.3 million people in the UK were employed in the public sector.
