Priority sector statistics
Table 6.1 of the main Excel tables and Tables 4.1 to 4.9 of the sub-sector Excel tables were updated on 25 August 2015 to include new data for Gross Value Added (GVA) from the Annual Business Survey.
- Just over two thirds of VAT or PAYE registered enterprises were in a priority sector in 2014. The largest sector in terms of registered enterprises was Financial & Professional Services (due to a large number of zero employee and micro size enterprises). The Life Sciences sector was the smallest.
- In 2014 the structure of registered enterprises varied greatly between the priority sectors; 82 per cent of employees in Construction were in Small-Medium Enterprises, compared with 41 per cent in Advanced Materials & Manufacturing and 39 per cent in the whole economy.
- The priority sector with the largest number of employee jobs in 2013 was the Financial & Professional Services sector (with 138,400). The sector with the smallest was Life Sciences with 10,000.
- In 2014 Food & Farming had the greatest proportion of self-employment at 45 per cent, followed by 38 per cent in Construction and Creative Industries. The smallest proportion was in Advanced Materials & Manufacturing (4 per cent), with the figure for the whole economy being 14 per cent.
- 11 per cent of employment in Wales was in the Energy & Environment sector, compared to 1 per cent for the Life Sciences sector. The priority sectors accounted for 44 per cent of employment in Wales in 2014.
- Full-time gross mean weekly earnings for employees in the priority sectors were slightly lower than those in non-priority sectors in 2014 (£543 vs. £534). The sector with the highest earnings was the Creative Industries sector (£711) whilst the lowest were in the Tourism and Food & Farming sector (£414). The figure for the whole economy was £537.
- In 2013 the business birth rate for the priority sectors was above that of the non-priority sectors (14.1 per cent vs. 9.8 per cent). The priority sector with the highest birth rate was the Financial & professional services sector (25.7 per cent), whilst the lowest was in the Food & farming Sector (0.4 per cent – however agriculture is not covered by the business demography statistics).
- GVA per hour worked in the priority sectors was higher than that of the non-priority sectors (£28 vs £16) in 2012. The Financial and Professional Services sector has the highest GVA per hour worked (£51) whilst the Creative Industries has the lowest (£13).
- The local authority with the greatest proportion of employment in the priority sectors in 2014 was Flintshire (56 per cent), whilst the lowest was in Denbighshire (36 per cent).
