Important notes and usage information

  • The estimates do not have National Statistics status and are volatile.
  • Unlike the three month average estimates, the single month estimates are not necessarily representative of the UK as a whole and they are based on only around one third of the sample size.
  • The three month average estimates (published at Table A02) have National Statistics status and provide a much more reliable indication of short-term movements in the labour market.
