(1) Standard Industrial Classification (1992) section F. (2) The Annual Business Inquiry does not include estimates of self-employment jobs. Therefore the estimates provided will be lower than the actual total. (3) 1995 Parliamentary Constituency Revision Boundary. (4) Figures for 1997 are based on estimates from the rescaled Annual Employment Survey and therefore there is a discontinuity between 1997 and 1998. Notes: 1. Annual Business Inquiry figures are a measure of jobs rather than people. For example, if a person holds two jobs, each job will be counted in the total. 2. Estimates for the United Kingdom using the Annual Business Inquiry are not available. 3. There are significant discontinuities which affect comparisons of the 2006 ABI/1 estimates with earlier years and additionally with respect to changes to Standard Industrial Classifications and Geographies in 2003.
