On 26 February 2015, ONS announced that an error had been discovered in the processing of counts of religion for three London boroughs: Camden, Islington and Tower Hamlets. ‘Religion not stated’ had been overestimated by 61,500 persons across the three boroughs, with all other categories underestimated by same number.
ONS have said that they will NOT publish corrected tables and have instead advised users to correct the data by applying correction factors. Hence the Greater London Authority has undertaken to produce corrected estimates for the Detailed Characteristics tables affected by the error.
These estimates are available as SASPAC system files.
