We have identified a coding error with the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE) provisional data for 2022, affecting a small number of employee jobs who were paid below the National Minimum Wage. We have corrected the Low and high pay in the UK: 2022 statistical bulletin and associated datasets (Distribution of low-paid jobs by 10 pence bands / Jobs paid below minimum wage by category). Previous years’ data are not affected.
We have corrected an error in Figure 2 and section 6. In section 6 the previous version read “In April 2022, there were approximately 509,000 employee jobs with employees aged 16 years and over who were paid below the National Minimum Wage (NMW) or National Living Wage (NLW) (1.7% of employee jobs).” It should have read “In April 2022, there were approximately 335,000 employee jobs with employees aged 16 years and over who were paid below the National Minimum Wage (NMW) or National Living Wage (NLW) (1.2% of employee jobs).
As this has minimal impact on all other ASHE outputs, they will be corrected when we publish revised 2022 data alongside the new 2023 figures in November 2023.
