As Director General for the Office for National Statistics, I have been asked to reply to your recent Parliamentary Question regarding what methodology the Office for National Statistics uses to estimate the number of people who permanently leave the UK. (322888)
The Office for National Statistics estimates long-term international emigration based mainly on data from the International Passenger Survey (IPS). Other data sources are used to make adjustments for asylum seekers and their dependants not counted by the IPS, people who change their intentions and, therefore, their migratory status and people who emigrate from Northern Ireland.
The methodology is described in detail at:
These estimates relate to those who intend to leave the UK for at least a year, including those who leave permanently. They are based on people's intentions at the time they leave the UK. Within this we are able to identify the number of people who say they intend to leave for longer than four years, but not those who intend to leave permanently.
The cross-government Migration Statistics Improvement Programme is improving the sources and methods used to produce the international migration estimates. Following extensive research and a large scale engagement programme with users, it has delivered improvements in the accuracy of migration statistics from the International Passenger Survey.
Mr. Hurd: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office pursuant to the answer to the hon. Member for Horsham of 25 February 2010, Official Report, column 699W, on employment, how many (a) public and (b) private sector employees there were in each constituency in the (i) equivalent period in 1996-97 and (ii) latest period for which figures are available. 
As Director General for the Office for National Statistics, I have been asked to reply to your Parliamentary Question asking how many (a) public and (b) private sector employees there were in each constituency in the (i) equivalent period in 1996-97 and (ii) latest period for which figures are available. (322883)
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) compiles employment statistics for local areas from the Annual Population Survey (APS) and its predecessor the Annual Labour Force Survey (LFS) following International Labour Organisation (ILO) definitions.
Individuals are classified to the public or private sector according to their responses to the APS. Consequently, the classification of an individual's sector may differ from how they would be classified in the National Accounts.
Estimates on the number of people in employment in the public and private sector are not available for the 1996-97 period from the Annual LFS. Estimates of employment for the latest available period have been provided as part of the answer in the Official Report, column 699W.
National and local area estimates for many labour market statistics, including employment, unemployment and claimant count are available on the NOMIS website at
Angela E. Smith: 17 individuals have responded to the UK Government ICT Strategy on the website Write to Reply. Government have also received comments from a range of other organisations including suppliers, trade associations and other interested parties.
Mr. Stewart Jackson: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office if she will place in the Library a copy of the guidance issued by the National Statistician to Government Departments on the publication of statistics during the 2010 general election campaign. 
Tessa Jowell: On the announcement of a general election, the Cabinet Office issues guidance on the handling of departmental business during the pre-election period, including guidance on statistical activities agreed with the National Statistician. The 2005 general election guidance is in the Libraries of both Houses, and can be found on the Cabinet Office website:
Justine Greening: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office how many businesses in each industry region in each sector went into (a) compulsory liquidation, (b) creditors' voluntary liquidation, (c) administration and (d) receivership in each year from 2004 to 2009. 
The following tables show figures for 2008 and 2009 for compulsory liquidations, creditors' voluntary liquidations (CVLs), receiverships and administrations broken down by Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) 2003 sectors, for England and Wales.
Earlier, complete years' figures broken down by industry are not available on the same basis, but are available for part of the period requested broken down according to the Insolvency Trade Classification (ITC) on the Insolvency Service's website:
|Table 1: Compulsory liquidations by industry( 1, 3)|
|(1) The Standard Industrial Classification (SIC 2003) definitions can be found at|
(2) Unknown SIC.
(3) Totals for compulsory liquidations here are not the same as the headline figures. This is because the industrial breakdown has been compiled from a specially selected extract from the live database, whereas the headline figures are produced monthly using a different reporting system.
(4) Figures for compulsory liquidations by industry are supplied a quarter in arrears. Hence the figure for 2009 only includes data for January-September 2009.
