(1) Standard Industrial Classification (1992/2003) 3511.
(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) Derived from the total employees aged 16 and over (Annual Population).
(4) Counts for 1997 are based on estimates from the rescaled Annual Employment Survey and therefore there is a discontinuity between 1997 and 1998.
(5) Sample size too small to provide an estimate.
Notes:
1. Annual Business Inquiry figures are a measure of jobs rather than people. For Estimates for the United Kingdom using the Annual Business Inquiry are not available.
2. 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. More information is available from http://www.statistics.gov.uk/abi/background_info.asp.
