An error has been identified in the mapping of Annual Survey for Hours and Earnings (ASHE) 2021 results to Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) 2020, published on 27 June 2022. This will mainly affect occupation breakdowns and tables 2, 3, 14, 20 and 26.

Employee earnings in the UK: 2022 published 26 October 2022 include revised 2021 ASHE data, with a SOC 2020 basis. As these revised figures will in any case supersede the preliminary estimates for 2021 on the SOC 2020 basis published in June, this article will not be corrected.

The provisional estimates on a SOC 2010 basis published in our Employee earnings in the UK: 2021 release on 26 October 2021 are unaffected by this error.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
