Note: Unpaid activities information relates to the four weeks ending 5 March 2013.

Unpaid activities information includes all people who stated each unpaid activity, whether as their only unpaid activity or as one of several. Where a person reported more than one unpaid activity, they were counted in each applicable group.

This data has been randomly rounded to protect confidentiality. Individual figures may not add up to totals, and values for the same data may vary in text, tables, and graphs. The accuracy of percentages may be affected by this rounding, particularly for ethnic groups with small populations.
