  1. Labour Force Survey (LFS) datasets are routinely reweighted in line with population estimates. As such, 2020 figures may not reflect those published within the 2020 GLMS release. Further details are set out within the methodology.
  2. Caution should be exercised in making comparisons to years prior to 2010-2011 as SOC codes were revised by the ONS at this point. Further details are set out within the methodology.
