Provides files to download data as it existed for this dataset on previous dates.

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).

Important notes and usage information

  1. The method used to produce the estimates updates the back years so figures for previous years are revised each time estimates are produced for the latest year. This is why the figures are labelled as provisional.

  2. Please note these figures are estimates. Although they are rounded to the nearest ten people, they cannot be guaranteed to be precise even to that level of detail.

  3. Figures may not add due to rounding.

  4. The aged 90 years and over totals are also rounded to the nearest 10 in the table for consistency. However, please note that unrounded aged 90 years over totals are published in the Mid Year Estimates.
