September 2017 - An expanded visual summary
Over the past year we have been looking at ways of making GDP data easier to understand. In July 2017 (the 2017 Q1 publication) we published a visual summary of the GDP statistics which was extremely well received by a wide range of our users. In October 2017 (for the 2017 Q2 GDP publication) we have published an expanded version of the visual summary alongside the existing GDP publication, with a view to replacing the existing publication with this new format. All existing information published in the associated excel tables will continue as normal.
Most of the information in the previous version of the GDP publication is directly transferred into the new visual summary, with additional detail added on the drivers of growth.
If you have any comments about this format, or if you would like to discuss the impact of these changes, please contact email@example.com.
