  5. 5. Respondents are asked to self-classify<br />What kind of non-private organisation was it? <br />1. a public limited company/plc? <br />2. a nationalised industry/state corporation? <br />3. central government or civil service?<br />4. local government or council (including police, fire services and local authority controlled schools/colleges)?<br />5. a university or other grant funded education establishment (include 'opted-out' schools)?<br />6. a health authority or NHS Trust?<br />7. a charity, voluntary organisation or trust? <br />8. the armed forces?<br />9. or was it some other kind of organisation?<br />Tends to be regarded as a ‘narrow definition’ of the third sector.<br />
  6. 6. Workers in the sector<br />Account for around 2.7% of total workers<br />Two thirds are women, although women represent under half the workforce<br />Almost 2 in 5 work part-time<br />Around 2 in 5 have degrees (average = 28%)<br />Are slightly older than average (43 years)<br />
