An error has been corrected in the 7 October release of labour productivity estimates of output per job. Self-employed jobs were excluded from the output per job calculations. Output per hour and output per worker estimates are unaffected. This results in changes to our headline measure and industry level estimates of output per job. Quarter on quarter, output per job decreased by 0.3% and not 0.8% as originally reported. Output per job relative to the 2019 average grew by 0.6% and not 0.3% as originally estimated. The output per job dataset has been updated to take onboard the missing data. The error occurred because of a system failure. We have adopted additional system checks to ensure that this does not happen in the future. We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused.

We are updating our output per hour productivity estimates published as part of the Productivity Overview, UK, April to June 2022. The updated data takes on board reweighted labour force survey data for Quarter 2 (Apr to June) 2021 to Quarter 4 (Oct to Dec) 2021 which had previously not been picked up by our systems due to a technical issue. Output per hour worked relative to the 2019 average grew by 1.7% and not 1.8% as originally estimated. There are no revisions to the output per job and output per worker datasets.
