Notes:

1. These data exclude agriculture class 0100 (SIC 92)

2. The 2003 ABI data for aggregate areas is based on 2003 CAS wards which differs from previous years ABI data which was build from 1991 census wards. This change in geographies may give rise to discontinuity, however at local authority level discontinuities are negligible.

3. Annual Business Inquiry data are workplace based.

4. Data has been rounded to the nearest hundred.
