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
A correction has been made to experimental, timely estimates of public service inputs and productivity. During further quality assurance of systems associated with the experimental release, an error was discovered in the processing of public service inputs where quarterly inputs had not been benchmarked for 2017. The error affect 2017 data, reducing growth in public service inputs by around 1.2 percentage points from positive 0.2% to negative 1.0%. For public service productivity, previous estimates reported a fall of 0.3% in 2017, however, revised estimates show a growth of 0.9% for the same period. Estimates for periods within the experimental period but outside of 2017 have experienced some minor revisions. In Quarter 2 (Apr to June) 2018 quarterly growth of public service inputs has been reduced by around 0.3 percentage points, from 2.1% to 1.8%. Similarly, public service productivity, previously estimated to have fallen by 2.0% was revised up, instead falling by 1.7%. You can see the original content in the superseded version.
