We identified a weighting error which resulted in Wales and Scotland being weighted to the wrong populations.
This issue occurred because of a processing error, and should not impact any future analysis.
The estimates and associated population counts for Wales and Scotland breakdowns in Table_1c and Table_2c have been updated. The population counts for England, Wales and Scotland may not sum to the “all persons” Great Britain total. This is because the weights for those in Wales and Scotland have been updated to correct for the weighting issue identified, whereas the Great Britain estimates have not been updated.
This error does not affect the message or findings. Given the small impact on other estimates these have not been updated. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
