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.
