The introduction of the Standard Occupational Classification 2010 (SOC 2010) in 2011 affected the weighting used to produce estimates from ASHE. Care should be taken when comparing data before 2011 with later data (dotted line).
The State Pension Age (SPA) for women began to increase from 2011. The analysis by age adjusts the population in the ’50 to spa’ age band to take account of this change.
