R: Revised - based on Department of Conservation’s revised data on sick/domestic leave. This revision is also reflected in other figures for sick/domestic leave on pages 49 and 50.

[13] Chief Executives are excluded from average salaries for individual departments but not from the overall Public Service average.

[14] Figures for average tenure and average sick/domestic leave are not available for CERA as these measures refer to open-term staff, whereas all CERA employees are on fixed-term contracts.
