Table 22.5 London and South East employment as percentage of total, 2013 Sector Total UK employment London and South East employment London and South East as % of UK total UK all industries 29,000,000 8,000,000 28.2 Film and video production 42,000 28,000 67.0 Source: Office for National Statistics Annual Population Survey Notes: The South East region wraps around London so includes the major studios to the west of the city. Totals shown in this table are for the period October 2012 to September 2013. Numbers in employment in the film industry are shown to the nearest 1,000 and for all UK industries are shown to the nearest 1,000,000 but percentages are based on unrounded numbers. As Figure 22.3 shows, the London and South East share of the film and video production workforce is consistently higher than the proportion for all UK industries, although this share fluctuates from year to year depending in part on the levels of production activity based in the capital and the surrounding major studios. Between 2009 and 2013, this has ranged from just under 67% in 2010 to just under 79% in 2008. In comparison the percentage of the total workforce based in London and the South East is consistently around 28%.
