Metadata

General description

These data are counts of civilian jobs of employees in various industry groupings, paid for by employers who run a Pay-As-You-Earn scheme and/or are registered for VAT.
The data for 2011 are not consistent with previous years due to improvements in the estimation of working proprietors. ONS plan to release the 2010 data on a consistent basis with 2011 in December. Further information can be found at: http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/guide-method/method-quality/specific/labour-market/business-register-and-employment-survey--bres-/index.html
The self-employed, HM forces, homeworkers and private servants are excluded.


Data collection and calculation

The figures are taken from the Business Register Employers Survey (BRES) run by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and are based on SIC07. As the results come from a survey, the results are sample-based estimates and therefore subject to differing degrees of sampling variability, i.e. the true value for any measure lies in a differing range about the estimated value. This range or sampling variability increases as the detail in the data increases, for example individual industry data are subject to higher variability than the all industries data.
The data themselves are to be found on the National On-line Manpower Information System (or NOMIS - see www.nomisweb.co.uk).
