This information is derived from the Annual Population Survey.
In previous years publication of this data has been through a statistical headline followed by a more detailed statistical bulletin of commentary and charts later in the year. In line with our plans set out in the consultation earlier this year “Proposals concerning the publication of official statistics” we have developed the headline into a statistical release, and intend to produce the detailed bulletin on an occasional basis rather than annually. As such there will be no further bulletin of this 2013 data.
