Important Information: The Annual Population Survey provides information on key social and socio-economic variables at a local level. The data enables monitoring of key estimates between censuses and provides local area information for labour market statistics. This data is based on the most detailed (4 digit) occupation data shown at unitary authority and county level; it has also been aggregated to region level*. The data covers the period April 2015 to March 2016*.

* Please note that the region figures have been aggregated from county and UA based data, where for disclosure control reasons some data has been suppressed. The counts at region level are therefore an approximation.
