Following the reintroduction of some of our Labour Force Survey (LFS) estimates, this dataset continues to be suspended while we review what’s the possible options for producing single-month estimates and weights for LFS earnings and longitudinal data.

Our Impact of reweighting on Labour Force Survey key indicators: 2024 article explains the reintroduction of LFS in more detail.

We will keep users updated.

  • The estimates do not have National Statistics status and are volatile.

  • Unlike the three-month average estimates, the single-month estimates are not necessarily representative of the UK as a whole and they are based on only around one third of the sample size.

  • The three-month average estimates (published at Table A02) have National Statistics status and provide a much more reliable indication of short-term movements in the labour market.
