Corrections and notices


04 March 2021

A processing error meant that estimates for the periods January to March 2020 and April to June 2020 were produced using incorrect weights. This error affected all earnings series in this spreadsheet. The error has now been corrected, resulting in a small change to estimates for the affected periods. We apologise for any inconvenience.

LFS responses are weighted to official 2018-based population projections on demographic trends that pre-date the coronavirus pandemic. In our Coronavirus and the impact on payroll employment article we analyse the population totals used in the LFS weighting process and state our intention to make adjustments. Rates published from the LFS remain robust; however, levels and changes in levels should be used with caution. This will particularly affect estimates for country of birth, nationality, ethnicity and disability.
