  • Description:

    "These data are on administrative geographic boundaries in place from 1 April 2009.
    Enterprise size is based on the number of employees working for the business (or public sector or not-for-profit organisation)
    in the UK as a whole. More information on the definition of enterprise size bands can be found in the article
    'Size of firms in London, 2001 to 2012'
    The industrial sectors presented are based upon the UK Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) 2007, with two changes:
    - sectors A, B, D and E have been combined to create new classification ""Primary and utilities""
    - sector G has been split, where divisions 45 and 46 combine to form ""Wholesale and motor trades"" while division 47 forms ""Retail""
    Further information on SIC 2007 can be found at:
    Data prior to 2009 has been converted from SIC 1992 and SIC 2003 onto SIC 2007 to provide a consistent time series. Caution should
    be exercised in interpreting the pre-2009 industry sector breakdowns as the conversion process relies on modelling, which is based
    on assumptions, and may not fully account for changes in the treatment of head office activities before the introduction of SIC07.
    More information can be found in Appendix 1 of the article 'Size of firms in London, 2001 to 2012' (see link in the 'Information' sheet).
    Local units with zero employment and enterprises with zero employment have been excluded from this analysis.
    The large increase in numbers of workplaces between 2011 and 2012 should be treated with caution. At UK level, nearly half
    of the increase (31,000 of 68,000 enterprises) was attributable to improvements to HM Revenue & Customs computer systems
    leading to previously excluded businesses being added to the IDBR."
