Notes: 1. Statistics are not collected or published for the reference date 1 January. 2. The Civil Service statistics represent those employees paid directly from the Department's payroll. 3. For 2005 and 2006 the Civil Service Statistics were not published with the permanent and temporary/casual breakdown. The information for 30 September 2006 is shown in the following table.

Any contractors are employed via agencies and so not paid directly by the Department or its agency. Information on contractors therefore cannot be provided.
