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
ONS identified that the index values and growth rates for the Business Services and Finance sector within the Index of Services publication were incorrect. These have now been amended. This correction affects the IoS components to four decimal places, Index of Services industry sections and components and time series datasets along with the statistical bulletin. The error did not impact any top-level data, so there is no impact on either GDP or Index of Services. ONS apologises for any inconvenience this may have caused.
