Note for users:

Investment in Training figures published in 2013 and 2011 have been revised. The revisions reflect a refined weighting approach for ESS 2015 to improve the accuracy of training spend figures in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

For revised figures, users should refer to the main ESS 2015 report. A separate technical paper has been published describing the revisions, available with the 2015 supplementary documents. Users of 2013 or 2011 data tables should contact the UKCES Employer Surveys team to request updated versions.
