Provides files to download data as it existed for this dataset on previous dates.

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).

Correction See correction
A small error occurred in the UK house building: permanent dwellings started and completed dataset. Data for financial years 2005 to 2006 onwards for Northern Ireland (sheet 2e) incorrectly contained data for calendar years. Financial year data for the UK (sheet 2a) was also affected as this is formed by the aggregation of data for the four constituent countries. We have corrected this error. You can see all previous versions of this data on the previous versions page. We apologise for any inconvenience.
