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).

Please note that the datasets, covering the period 13 January to 7 February 2021 and 17 February to 14 March 2021, have been updated to remove an incorrect note relating to the five-category ethnicity definition used. The previous definition incorrectly states that the categories used are in line with the GSS Ethnicity Harmonised standard. However, in the analysis presented "Chinese" adults are categorised with the "Other ethnic group" rather than the "Asian or Asian British" group as specified by the GSS Ethnicity Harmonised standard. The data have not been affected.
