Main APS dataset reinstated

The main Annual Population Survey dataset has been reinstated following its suspension on 15 September. An update with the correct weights applied was released at 09.00 on 16 September 2021.

The latest data from the Annual Population Survey (APS) was originally published on Nomis at 07.00 on 14 September 2021. At the same time the figures for the periods from Apr 2019 - Mar 2020 onwards should have been revised to use the latest weights. However, the main Annual Population Survey (APS) dataset did not have the correct version of the weights applied to these revised periods.

Four APS periods were affected: Apr19 - Mar20, Jul19- Jun20, Oct19-Sep20, Jan20-Dec20. If you downloaded data for these periods on the 14 Sep or 15 Sep from the main APS dataset, please download again to get the correctly weighted figures.

The newly released figures for the latest period (Apr20-Mar21) and periods prior to Apr19-Mar20 were not affected, nor were other APS datasets, including all the regional datasets and the workplace analysis.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused.
