Staff Survey 2018 - Detailed Spreadsheets

Please note, all data in the detailed spreadsheet is unweighted and should not be used to make comparisons between organisations. This means that the data will differ from that presented in most sections of feedback reports available for each organisation, as well as from the national briefing and national weighted analysis. For further information on the weighting, please see the 'Technical document', available here

Averages presented in the detailed spreadsheets are calculated as means of the organisation means. This means that all organisations have an equal impact on the average, regardless of their size or response rate.
