In 2012 there were 178,197 eligible respondents (aged 16 and over) to the sexual identity question. Of these 169,239 provided a valid response. The question was not asked by proxy.
ONS defines 'no response' as no data provided to the question by an eligible responder.
The 'no response' category includes respondents who were aged 15 in wave 1 of the LFS/APS but are now aged 16 in the January to December 2012 field period. Information on a change affecting the processing of these cases can be found in the background notes.
Percentages might not add to 100 per cent due to rounding.
The whisker bar represents the confidence intervals for each estimate. Information on what confidence intervals are can be found in the background notes.
