Wealth and Assets Survey: Revisions Policy (92.9 Kb Pdf)
This information note explains the revisions policy adopted by the Wealth and Assets Survey.

Arrangements for unplanned revisions are included as part of the ONS compliance statement. This policy covered all releases of the output, whether through statistical bulletin, news release, web release or release of datasets.
The MQ5 output is not market sensitive, so the associated provisions in the ONS compliance statement do not apply.
