As survey results, these are subject to a degree of error and implied changes between the 2005 and 2006 results may not be significant and instead be within a given error range. Confidence limits can be used to assess the range of values that the true value lies between. 95% confidence limits for most of the results in this publication can be downloaded from the Nomis ® website - http://www.nomisweb.co.uk .

What does the 95% confidence limit mean? If, for example, we have an APS estimate and confidence limit of 63% +/- 0.27%, this means that 19 times out of 20 we would expect the true rate to lie between 62.73% and 63.27%. Only in exceptional circumstances (1 in 20 times) would we expect the true rate to be outside the confidence interval around the APS estimate. Thus the smaller the confidence limits, the more reliable the estimate. The following tables give confidence limits for the 2006 estimates published in this report.
