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).

Following publication on 21 September 2021, an error has been found in the Public Sector Finances (PSF): August 2021 release. The error affects data for the period April 2020 to August 2021 inclusive. Public Sector Net Borrowing (excluding Public Sector Banks – PSNB ex) was overstated by £4.6 billion in the financial year ending March 2021 and £2.5 billion in the financial year-to-August 2021. PSNB is now estimated to have been £320.5 billion in the financial year ending March 2021 and £91.3 billion in the financial year-to-August 2021. This error was the result of provisional data for the Public Sector Funded Pension Schemes being used in the estimation of the published dataset. In September 2021, we changed the discount rate used for future pension liabilities from 5% to 4%, taking on a change in international statistical standards. However, in the provisional dataset, the data for April 2020 onwards for these public sector schemes was estimated using the 5% discount rate. In the corrected version, this had been updated, consistent with the 4% rate. Correcting this error has affected Public Sector Funded Pension Schemes’ net borrowing and so Public Sector Net Borrowing. There has been no impact on net cash requirement or net debt as a result of this correction. ONS apologises for any inconvenience caused by this error.

We have identified two issues with the Public Sector Finances release which was originally published on 22 October 2019. These issues have been corrected in this edition. The main issue affected local government current expenditure and local government net borrowing in the financial year to date, as well as the equivalent general government and public sector measures; including public sector net borrowing. Public sector net borrowing (excluding public sector banks – PSNBex) was overstated by £1.3 billion in the financial year to date (April to September 2019); for September 2019 alone it was overstated by £0.2 billion. A second, smaller issue involved the handling of public sector pensions data. This affected the current budget deficit (including public sector banks) between the financial year ending (FYE) March 1998 and FYE March 2008, but had no impact on the current budget deficit (excluding public sector banks). The size of the correction for this issue is negligible in each year. Although GDP is not affected by this error, there will be some small impact on the Sector and Financial Accounts. The corrected data will be taken on in the next release, which is scheduled for December 2019. The ONS apologises for this error and for any inconvenience.

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 2017/18 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 REC2 in the Public Sector Finances released at 09:30am on 21st September 2016. A processing error led to the publication of incorrect data for 2015/16 for series ANRS and associated series ANRV, ANSI, ANSL, ANSV, ANSY, JW34 and JW37 which are derived from ANRS. 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.
