The statistics file can address several effective concepts :

- number of staff as at 31 December; 
- actually worked full-time equivalents, taking into account the time spent by the military in the year.

It also allows us to understand several concepts of wages through the level of detail of the file. Net pay, gross wages, wage cutting in large families of bonuses or contributions, particular effects of certain bonuses, etc. can be calculated.

Personal socio-demographic characteristics are also available: gender, age, ranks, geographic level, etc.
