Annual Population Survey (APS)

On Wed 20 March 2016 ONS revised estimates derived from the Annual Population Survey (including estimates of employment, unemployment and economic inactivity) as a result of taking on board population estimates based on the 2011 Census. Estimates are revised back to the survey period April 2012 to March 2013. These revisions are in line with similar revisions to Labour Force Survey estimates published in the October 2014 UK Labour Market and Regional Labour Market Statistical Bulletins.

This revision affects the main Annual Population Survey dataset and the Model-based Estimates of Employment.

Due to a technical issue the workplace based analysis is not being reweighted at this time.
