Abstract

This paper uses pooled data from the UK Quarterly Labour Force Survey (QLFS) to identify patterns and trends in paid employment in the self-defined (employee defined) voluntary sector between 1995 and 1998. It takes a comparative perspective by comparing these trends in absolute and relative terms with those taking place in the (employee defined) public and private (for-profit) sectors. Among the dimensions of similarity, difference and change over time compared by sector are employee status; gender; ethnicity; prevalence of disability and health problems; workplace size; extent of unionisation; territorial variation (between the countries of the UK); and compositional factors (in terms of industry and occupation).
