The information requested falls within the responsibility of the National Statistician, who has been asked to reply.
Letter from Karen Dunnell, dated 28 November 2007:
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking what percentage of people in the Peterborough City Council area are employed in (a) service industries and (b) manufacturing industries. (168123)
In 2005, an estimated 84 per cent of employee jobs in Peterborough local authority area were in service industries and 12 per cent. were in manufacturing industries.
These estimates are from the Annual Business Inquiry (ABI). They do not include self-employment jobs.
As with any sample survey, estimates from the ABI are subject to a margin of uncertainty.
