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).

A transcription error arose in the publication the dataset tables accompanying the trend in life expectancy by the national statistics socioeconomic classification between 1982 to 1986 and 2007 to 2011. The class 6 (semi-routine) age-specific deaths, person years at risk and mortality rates for females in the period 1987 to 1991 have been corrected. All other data in the dataset tables are unaffected.
