The Northern Ireland Business Register and Employment Survey (BRES)
The BRES is a statutory survey and was first carried out in 2010. It is a sample survey and will be conducted every two years, alternating with the biennial Census of Employment. It provides estimates for the number of employee jobs in all industries except agriculture. The self-employed are also not included. Results are available for male, female, full-time and part-time at the headline industrial section (Services, Manufacturing, Construction and Other) based on the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC2007). Figures are also available for District Council Areas. The availability of data is subject to confidentiality constraints. Information from the BRES is available in excel format as detailed in the table below.

Please note that a correction has been made to this document. This bulletin was first published at 9.30am on 27th September but an error was subsequently identified in the Female Full-Time and Part-Time split. This meant that the Female Full-Time category was over estimated and the Female Part-Time category under estimated. This error has now been corrected and the revised bulletin was reissued at 5.00pm on Friday 4th October 2013.
NISRA seeks to minimise the need for corrections in its statistical publications. However, where material errors are detected, it undertakes to issue corrections promptly, to alert key stakeholders and to provide an explanation.
