Supplementary notes

* Seasonally Adjusted
** Changes have been made to the part of the database used to capture information on trading status and industry codes. From 2006 Q4, "self-employed" includes the categories "self-employed"; "trader but failure not as a result of trading" and "trading partnership"; and "other individuals" includes "non-trading"; "non-surrender" and "unknown". The breakdown by self-employment status from Q4 2006 should not therefore be considered to be entirely consistent with that for the earlier period.
