Beginning from the next dissemination on March 20th, there will be a change in how the sickness absence rate is calculated. At this dissemination, figures will be published by both the old and new calculation method - and the new calculation method will be applied backwards in time to provide comparable time series.
|3rd quarter 2018||Per cent from previous quarter|
|1The sickness absence rates are shown to two decimal points. In other tables the rates are shown with one decimal point. More decimal points are used when calculating the rates of change in order to get more accurate figures. These will therefore differ slightly from the rates of change produced when using the published rounded figures.|
