* Selected periods: October to December in each year up to 2014, April to June for 2014 to 2018.
It should be noted that responses to the Labour Force Survey can be affected by whether or not respondents recognize the term “zero-hours contract”. Although the latest figure is higher than previous figures, it is not possible to say how much of this increase is due to greater recognition of the term “zero-hours contracts” rather than new contracts.
