Provides files to download data as it existed for this dataset on previous dates.

Statistics are most often revised for 1 of 2 reasons:

  1. For certain statistics initial estimates are released with the expectation that these may be revised and updated as further data becomes available.
  2. Revisions may also be made when methods or systems are changed.

These types of planned revisions should not be confused with errors in released statistics, which are genuine mistakes. Such mistakes occur rarely and, when they do happen, corrections are made in a timely manner, announced and clearly explained to users in line with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics (Principle 2, Practice 7).

An error has been identified in the recording of public sector equity liabilities, reported in tables PSNFL1 to PSNFL3 as components of public sector net financial liabilities excluding public sector banks (PSNFL ex). This error affects data for the first and second quarters of 2018 (January to March and April to June), which means data for the financial year ending March 2018 (April 2017 to March 2018) are also impacted. The correction of the equities data has caused the total for PSNFL ex to revise downwards from £1,453.4 billion, as reported on 21 September 2018, to £1,437.5 billion for the financial year ending March 2018. Data for earlier quarters are not impacted. The error correction not only impacts PSNFL ex and the component equity liabilities but also impacts a number of other data series reported in the PSNFL tables (ONS identifiers CPNO, CPNG, CPNF, CPNE, CPPK and CPND). The error correction has no impact on other tables or text within the public sector finances release of 21 September 2018.

26 September 2017: An error occurred in our estimation of local government net borrowing for the period January 2016 to June 2017, which did not include updated estimates of intermediate consumption. We have corrected this error, which also feeds through into the overall public sector borrowing. The effect is of the correction is to reduce borrowing by £89m in 2015/16, by £568m in 2016/17 and by £142m in 2017 year-to-date. We have also identified a small error in the reporting of central government net investment components between April 2013 and July 2017. The error was limited to Table PSA6F and correcting it has had no impact on either central government net investment or net borrowing. You can see all previous versions of these data on the previous versions page. ONS apologises for any inconvenience.

A minor error was identified in table PSA9 in the Public Sector Finances released at 09:30am on 21st October 2016. A processing error led to the level of gilts held by the Bank of England Asset Purchase Facility Fund (APF) being overstated by £11.0 billion. Gilts held by the APF which reached maturity in September 2016 were not recorded as redeemed leading to the assets of the APF being overstated and, correspondingly, public sector net debt understated. As a result of correcting this error, public sector net debt at the end of September 2016 (Series HF6W) has increased by £11.3 billion or 0.6 percentage points of GDP (Series HF6X). Due to the removal of interest payments to the APF related to these gilts, the public sector net borrowing (Series -J5II) in September 2016 has increased by £18 million and public sector net cash requirement (Series JW38) in September 2016 has increased by £221 million. Tables PSA1, 2, 3, 4, 7A, 8D, 9 and REC1 have been updated to reflect the corrected dataset. We apologise for any inconvenience.

A minor error was identified in table PSA6E in the Public Sector Finances released at 09:30am on 21st September 2016. A processing error led to series NMDL being published with the incorrect signage. Series NMDL has now been corrected leading to revisions to tables PSA6C (NMDL) and PSA6E (series MHA8, MF6R, MF6S and MF6U which are derived from NMDL). Measures of net borrowing, net cash requirement and net debt are unaffected by these changes. We apologise for any inconvenience.

A minor error was identified in table REC2 in the Public Sector Finances released at 09:30am on 21st September 2016.

These series have now been corrected leading to revisions to tables REC1, PSA10 and Public Sector Finances borrowing by sub-sector, in 2015/16. Measures of net borrowing, net cash requirement and net debt are unaffected by these changes. We apologise for any inconvenience.
