Abstract

Inevitably current interest in the Scottish labour market continues to focus on the trends in both employment and unemployment figures, a theme developed in other sections of this edition. Public interest continues to focus on public sector employment trends and for a further issue we return to these themes. Of interest is the impact of patterns and behaviour of immigrants to and emigrants from Scotland on recent employment patterns, and initially recent findings are considered.
