Award Course Completions Pivot Table 2022

Created:

Allows for customised higher education award course completions tables, with time series data from 2016.

To avoid the risk of disseminating identifiable data, a disclosure control technique called input perturbation has been applied to the data within the Pivot Table, whereby small random adjustments are made to cell counts. For more details see the 'Explanatory Notes' within the pivot table.  

Aggregates within the Pivot Tables may not match other tables. Where unperturbed figures are required, users should consult the Higher Education Statistics published on the department’s website.
