Workforce Jobs estimates include data from the Labour Force Survey (LFS). LFS responses are weighted to official population projections. From the 15th July 2021 an improved LFS weighting methodology, better accounting for population changes through the COVID-19 pandemic, has been implemented affecting periods from January to March 2020 onwards.

We intend to take on these revised LFS estimates in our September 2021 publication of Workforce Jobs statistics. Until then, Workforce Jobs estimates will include LFS data which uses the previous weighting methodology and, though rates remain robust, levels and changes in levels should be used with caution.
