Supplementary notes

The source makes the following note regarding methodology: "Discontinuity in data in this table - For 2018 there was a change in the data collection method from a paper questionnaire, to an online electronic questionnaire. This change had an impact on the results for businesses with 0 to 9 employees, causing a discontinuity in this sizeband's results. This also impacted on estimates relating to all businesses."
