Creative Industries Total Employment in Scotland

Employment includes employees plus the number of working owners who receive drawings or a share of the profits but are not paid via PAYE. However, the employment estimate does not include those that are self employed operating below the VAT threshold with no employees i.e. the smallest sole proprietors and partnerships.
