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).

An error was discovered in the number of UK-owned and foreign-owned businesses in Northern Ireland. Some foreign-owned businesses based in Northern Ireland were incorrectly classified as UK-owned, meaning the Northern Ireland data had to be resupplied. These data can be found in the "Regional 2020" and "Regional 2019" sheets in our Foreign-owned businesses in the UK: business count, turnover and aGVA, from the Annual Business Survey dataset. The corresponding turnover and aGVA for these businesses was also incorrectly classified. These data also contributed to the total UK-owned and foreign-owned figures. The values have now been corrected by our suppliers and quality assured by our teams. This release and all related data have been updated.
