Depend upon fields
The HESA staff contract session population is an indicator of those contracts that are active during the HESA reporting period.
Staff returned with a dormant mode of employment (Contract.MOEMP=6) are excluded from this population.
Atypical staff (Contract.TERMS=3) are included in this population.
The HESA staff contract session population is only used in analyses of staff full-time equivalents (FTE) cost centre activity - (XSAFPE01) on the Cyy025_CC (cost centre) table - or when summing full-time equivalents (Contract.CONFTE) from the Person.Contract entity.
* Note to developers: The length of Contract.CONFTE is a maximum of 5 characters (nnn.n), however the move to XML enables data to be returned with or without leading zeros or the decimal place, e.g. '000.0', '00.0', '0.0' or '0' are equally acceptable.
