answer text <p>The independent Office for National Statistics (ONS) use the Labour Force Survey (LFS) to provide estimates for the number of people in employment on contracts that do not guarantee minimum hours (known as ‘zero hours’ contracts’). This data is available for the Oct-Dec quarter only for each year from 2010 to 2018 and is set out in the table below.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Table: Level and rate of people aged 16 and over on zero-hours contracts October to December each year</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td colspan="2"><p>UK, not seasonally adjusted</p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><p>Percentage of people in employment on a zero-hours contract</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2010</p></td><td><p>0.6</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2011</p></td><td><p>0.6</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2012</p></td><td><p>0.8</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2013</p></td><td><p>1.9</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2014</p></td><td><p>2.3</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2015</p></td><td><p>2.5</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2016</p></td><td><p>2.8</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2017</p></td><td><p>2.8</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>2018</p></td><td><p>2.6</p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><p>Source: ONS Labour Force Survey</p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><p>The estimates for 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 are considered precise</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>ONS advise that the increased media coverage of zero-hours’ contracts arrangements in the latter half of 2013 may have affected the response to this question by raising awareness of this existing type of contractual arrangement.
