Amendments on 20 June: The percentage of BAME within the UK Economy was incorrectly reported on page 21. This has now been corrected in the PDF document to 11.3 per cent. There are no changes to any other figures in this report or other documents on this page.

Amendments on 4 July: The 2011 total in Table 1 and Table 2 was incorrectly reported and should be 1,562,000. This has been corrected in the accompanying tables. The chart in Figure 8 was showing data for the Creative Economy rather than the Creative Industries. This has now been corrected.
