Rate : Public Services

Rates are used to define comparative statistics that can be mapped and graphed. For example, our occupational information includes counts of the number of workers in employment and out of employment, as well as the total number of workers. We then define a measure called the 'Unemployment Rate', which uses the number out of work rather than the number in work, and expresses it as a percentage of the total, rather than a rate per thousand. The descriptive text in the system is defined mainly for rates.

This sector covers local and central government, including defence, plus health and education (including private hospitals and schools -- the census data do not let us distinguish). Although this is partly about providing services to the local population, universities serve global markets and bring money in.
