Revisions policy

This revisions policy relates to the adult social care statistics collected and published by NHS Digital described on this page:

  • there are no routinely planned revisions to the statistics once published (this can occur for some statistics when they are originally published as ‘provisional’ and then updated to ‘final’ – this is not the case for adult social care statistics)
  • unscheduled revisions may take place where an error has been found in NHS Digital’s statistical publication process. Processes are automated where possible and continually reviewed, checked and documented to minimise risk of error. Where an unscheduled revision has occurred we will ensure this is flagged and explained to users in a transparent way.
  • revisions to the data provided to NHS Digital by local authorities is only permitted during the data collection ‘refresh submission period’ (a period of time after the mandated submission deadline and before publication, where data providers have access to a data quality validation report from NHS Digital). Once the deadline for the refresh window has passed no further changes can be made
