Scottish Economic Statistics 2007

Welcome to the Scottish Executive web-site where we present Scottish Economic Statistics 2007.

This annual publication is focused on drawing together a record of previously published data covering the past 12 months that relate to the Scottish economy. I hope that the publication will form an accessible source of primary Scottish data.

These data are regularly updated in between editions of Scottish Economic Statistics as new statistics become available and as the methodological approaches are reviewed and refined. These data are available after release on http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/Statistics/Browse/Economy/Publications or on request.

I always welcome any comments or ideas that readers may have from their use of Scottish Economic Statistics.
