REF 2014 Sector Results 2 – Intensity

Following on from this morning’s first results of the HEFCE REF data which you can find here, we now have a new table which includes the all-important measure of ‘intensity’ which is a percentage of eligible staff submitted to the REF, drawn from the HESA contextual data released this morning which showed us the total full-time equivalents (FTE) of staff identified as eligible to be submitted to the REF 2014 by HE provider and REF Unit of Assessment.

First analysis and explanation of this can be found here.

The institutions below are those that submitted in more than one discipline which is why there are fewer overall entries and why some of the specialist institutions miss out compared to first analysis.
