(b) In 2004 additional supplementary surveys were introduced to improve the coverage of the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings. Figures are presented both excluding and including the additional surveys for comparison purposes.
Guide to quality:
The Coefficient of Variation (CV) indicates the quality of a figure, the smaller the CV value the higher the quality.
The true value is likely to lie within +/- twice the CV - for example, for an average of 200 with a CV of 5%, we would expect the population average to be within the range 180 to 220.
CV <= 5%
* CV > 5% and <= 10%
** CV > 10% and <=20%
x CV > 20%
The median replaces the mean as the headline statistic. The weighted mean is the sum of the weighted values divided by the sum of the weights. The median is the value below which 50 per cent of employees fall. It is preferred over the mean for earnings data as it is influenced less by extreme values and because of the skewed distribution of earnings data.

The following table shows the number of furniture manufacturers that have (a) registered and (b) de-registered for VAT in each year since 1997. The start of year stock of VAT registered businesses is also shown.

Figures are for SIC code 361, manufacturer of furniture.

VAT registration and de-registration data do not capture all business activity. Businesses are unlikely to be registered if their turnover falls below the compulsory VAT threshold, which has risen in each year since 1997. Similarly, businesses that de-register will not necessarily have closed. Only 1.8 million out of 4.3 million businesses (42 per cent.) were registered for VAT at the start of 2005.
Mr. Francois: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what effect on the income generated to the Exchequer has resulted from the extension of the higher rate of insurance premium tax to all travel insurance since 1998. 
Mr. Timms: Strong progress has been made towards our target of relocating 20,000 civil service posts out of London and the south-east by 2010 and by the end of September 2006 more than 10,500 posts had already been moved to every nation and region in the UK. Of these, more than 640 went to the north-east.
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent question asking what the mortality rate was of (a) men and (b) women in Eastbourne in each year since 1996. (105112)
The attached table provides the age-standardised mortality rate for (a) men and (b) women in Eastbourne local authority for the years 1996 to 2005 (the latest available).

Mr. Waterson: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the (a) diagnosis and (b) mortality rate was for (i) chronic lung disease, (ii) coronary heart disease and (iii) cancer in each ward in Eastbourne constituency in each of the last 10 years. 
As National Statistician, I have been asked to reply to your recent question asking what the (a) diagnosis and (b) mortality rate was for (i) chronic lung disease, (ii) coronary heart disease and (iii) cancer in each ward in Eastbourne constituency in each of the last 10 years. (105113)
Figures on the incidence of chronic lung disease and coronary heart disease are not readily available. Mortality and incidence rates are not available for parliamentary constituencies which do not share boundaries exactly with a local authority, or with any combination of whole wards; consequently, figures are given for Eastbourne local authority. The numbers of deaths and cancer registrations per year in each ward in Eastbourne local authority are too small for the reliable calculation of rates.
The attached tables provide (a) the age-standardised cancer incidence rate in Eastbourne local authority for the years 1995 to 2004 (the latest available), and (b) the age-standardised mortality rates for (i) chronic lung disease, (ii) coronary heart disease and (iii) cancer in Eastbourne local authority for the years 1996 to 2005 (the latest available).
