Introduction

This bulletin examines data relating to MOD Diversity statistics. It is produced as part of the transparency and accountability of the Ministry of Defence to Parliament and the Public.

The Information in this Bulletin has a wide range of users including the media, politicians, academic researchers and the general public who use the information to:

•understand the size and distribution of core MOD organisations by individual diversity categories

•assist in understanding the effect of changes in Defence policy, for instance changes to diversity analysis within recruiting

(Video) Here's Why You Rarely Saw Barron During Trump's Presidency

In the report we will analyse the current diversity range within core MOD.

Core MOD – Entities within the MOD Departmental Boundary based on civilians with active personnel records on the Human Resources Management System (HRMS) within a MOD Main TLB.

This data excludes personnel in organisations with delegated personnel functions, UK Hydrographic, Defence Science and Technology Laboratory, Defence Nuclear Organisation (including Submarine Delivery Agency), Defence Electronic Components Agency and Defence and Equipment Trading Entity.

Definitions

Declaration Rates : Ethnic background, disability, religion and sexual orientation are self-declared. Therefore, representation rates are calculated from known declarations and exclude ‘choose not declare’ and ‘unknown’.

MOD Main Civilian Personnel : Includes staff in Top Level Budgetary Areas (TLBs). Excludes: Trading funds, DE&S Bespoke Trading Entity, Executive Agency, Royal Fleet Auxiliary and Locally engaged civilians (LECs).

Gender Representation

Table 2 – Female Representation of MOD Main Civilian Personnel, as at 1 April 2017 to 1 April 2021

Apr-17 Apr-18 Apr-19 Apr-20 Apr-21
Headcount 15,220 15,130 15,610 15,900 16,590
Proportion of total (%) 41.6 42.4 43.0 43.8 44.1

Age Band Charts : Charts by age band for each diversity category have been compiled on the basis of within band analysis. For instance, the female group at each age band is split by all civilian MOD female staff and multiplied by 100 to get the percentage of the distribution. This means that the female proportions split by age will add up to 100%.

Age Group Distribution

Within the reported age band distribution there was a higher proportion of female personnel for age groups 16 to 29 up to 40 to 49 years of age compared to the equivalent male population, with this trend reversing for age groups 50 years and over. This indicates that overall female personnel are likely to be younger than their male counterparts.

Figure 2a – Female Representation of MOD Main Civilian Personnel Within Age Bands, as at 1 April 2021

Civilian personnel biannual diversity dashboard report 1 April 2021 (3)

Grade Band Charts : Charts by grade band for each diversity category have been compiled on the basis of across group analysis. For instance, the female group at each grade is split by all MOD female staff, and the result multiplied by 100 to get the percentage of the distribution. This means that female and male proportions split by grade will add to 100%.

Grade Band Distribution

For grade bands SCS to D the proportion of female personnel at each grade band has increased, with the largest increase in SCS at 7.9 percentage points, with the band E population reducing slightly and the Industrial proportion remaining comparable.

Declaration Rates

‘Ethnicity’, ‘Sexual Orientation’, ‘Religion & Faith’, and ‘Disability’ are based on self-declaration. Each member of personnel can choose from the following options:

(Video) Council on Access and Fairness 8-27-21

One of the available diversity data fields (an active declaration)

Choose not to declare (no declaration)

No response (no declaration)

Declaration Rate is the number of personnel who make an ‘active declaration’ as a proportion of the total personnel. To ensure meaningful representation rates for a diversity field, a minimum 60 % declaration level is required.

Table 9 - Declaration Rates by Percentage, as at 1 April 2017 to 1 April 2021

Disability 56.6 59.0 70.4 74.5 76.4 19.7

* ppt change for 2017 – 2021

The low declaration rate for disability is mainly down to the department’s Human Resource Management System (HRMS) resetting in April 2011 to accommodate the new disability reporting requirements resulting from the 2011 census exercise. Consequently all disability records were reset and personnel were requested to re-declare their disability status.

Improvements in the declaration rates for all four diversity measures from April 2018 to April 2021 are largely as a result of a policy strategy designed to encourage people to complete their diversity records. People still had the option to positively opt-out of providing details by selecting ‘Choose not to declare’.

Grade Structures

Since 1 April 1996 all departments and agencies have had delegated responsibility for the pay and grading of their employees, except for those in the Senior Civil Service (SCS). The MOD grades are shown here against levels broadly equivalent (in terms of pay and job weight) to the former service-wide grades.

MOD Grades Former Service-Wide Grades
SCS – Senior Civil Service SCS – Senior Civil Service
B1 & equivalents Grade 6
B2 & equivalents Grade 7
C1 & equivalents SEO – Senior Executive Officer
C2 & equivalents HEO – Higher Executive Officer
D & equivalents EO – Executive Officer
E1 & equivalents AO – Administrative Officer
E2 & equivalents AA – Administrative Assistant

Rounding

Tables and Charts Within this Document

Where rounding has been used, totals and sub-totals have been rounded separately and so may not equal the sums of their rounded parts. This also applies to Civilian personnel data expressed in terms of Full-Time Equivalents (FTE).

When rounding to the nearest 10, numbers ending in “5” have been rounded to the nearest multiple of 20 to prevent systematic bias.

All percentages are calculated from headcount totals (part time equivalent to one person), from unrounded figures and are shown to 1 decimal place.

Excel Tables Accompanying this Publication

An updated MOD Disclosure Control and Rounding policy has been published on GOV.UK and we have applied this policy to the statistics on Civilian personnel in the accompanying Excel tables. The policy is available

here.

Disclosure control will still be applied to statistical or numeric information to safeguard the confidentiality of individuals. ‘Disclosure control’ refers to the efforts made to reduce the risk of disclosure, such as applying statistical methods to protect ‘personally identifiable information’ (PII) in aggregate data tables. These safeguards can take many forms (e.g. data suppression, rounding, recoding etc.).

Revisions

Occasionally errors can occur in statistical processes; procedures are constantly reviewed to minimise this risk. Should a significant error be found the publication on the website will be updated and an errata slip published documenting the revision.
