The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic presents a significant challenge to the UK. We are working to ensure that the UK has the vital information needed to respond to the impact of this pandemic on our economy and society.
The effects of the pandemic on ONS capacity and capability during this period means we have reviewed the existing labour market releases.
This is to protect the delivery and quality of our remaining outputs as well as ensuring we can respond to new demands as a direct result of COVID-19. More details about the impact on labour market outputs can be found in our statement.
We have changed the publication time of this release from 9.30am to 7.00am. This is in response to the developing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in the UK and is to ensure fair and equal access to our market sensitive statistics.
More information on this change and the releases it affects is available in our Changes to publication times of market-sensitive statistics statement.
Experimental monthly estimates of paid employees and their pay from HM Revenue and Customs’ (HMRC’s) Pay As You Earn (PAYE) Real Time Information (RTI) data. This is a joint release between HMRC and the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
