This data item indicates the age of the person and is output in age groups.
These are single year categories between 15 and 24 years inclusive, followed by 5 year groups between 25 and 69 years and a category for 70 years and over.
Age is consistent across the longitudinal records. People who have a birthday during their 8 months in the labour force survey have had their age recorded as the most reported age. If a person has a birthday early during the 8 month period, their oldest age is recorded, and if a person has a birthday late, their youngest age is recorded.
For more detailed age data, refer to Age [AGECE]
This age breakdown relates to the age groups of the population benchmarks, which are used to calculate the weights for each person (see Weighting and Benchmarks).
