This additional Statistical First Release (SFR) provides details of methodological revisions to the HEIPR and the impact of these revisions on the HEIPR time series from 1999/2000 to 2004/05 (provisional), which was published in SFR14/2006 on 4 April 2006. The methodological revisions arise from recommendations in a National Statistics Quality Review and a recent National Audit Office report on data systems underpinning PSA targets.

Provisional figures for the HEIPR for 2005/06 will be published in SFR10/2007 Participation Rates in Higher Education: Academic Years 1999/2000 - 2005/06 (Provisional) on 27 March 2007.
