The figures include full- and part-time employees, as well as working business owners.
For example, Education Employment in London is 387 thousand and total Employment in London is around 5 million. So the percentage shown is 387 / 5000 = 7.7%.
Employment numbers exclude military personnel. Owner-operated businesses, including sole traders, are included if they are registered for VAT or PAYE.
