Quarter 2 2017

A National Statistics Publication For Scotland

Date: 8 November 2017

KEY RESULTS
  • This publication includes results for the second quarter of 2017 (April-June).

  • Over the latest 12 months, from July 2016 to June 2017, the value of Scotland’s onshore GDP is estimated at £150.9 billion in total, or £27,857 per person, in current prices.

  • Including a geographical share of UK extra-regio (offshore and overseas) economic activity, Scottish GDP is estimated at £161.0 billion in total, or £29,723 per person during the latest 12 months.

  • Over the year to 2017 Q2, compared to 2016 Q2, the expenditure measure of onshore Gross Domestic Product shows that the increase in GDP in current prices (not real terms) was mostly driven by consumer spending, but with positive contributions also made by government spending and net trade. Capital investment made a negative contribution to GDP growth over the latest year.

  • Manufactured Exports make up around half of the total value of exports from Scotland to the rest of the world (excluding oil and gas). The Index of Manufactured Exports (IME) decreased by 0.4% in volume terms during the second quarter of 2017. On a rolling annual basis, comparing the most recent four quarters to the previous four quarters, the volume of manufactured exports decreased by 0.6%.

  • Over the year to 2017 Quarter 2, total consumer spending by the Household and Non-Profit Institutions Serving Households (NPISH) sectors is estimated to have increased by 3.0% in current prices (unadjusted for inflation, not real terms).

  • Gross Disposable Household Income (GDHI) is estimated to have increased by 1.1% over the year to 2017 Quarter 2 (in current prices, not real terms). The Household Savings Ratio is 6.4 per cent in the latest quarter, compared to an average value of 7.8 per cent during 2016.

  • In this publication there are no updates or revisions to the headline GDP growth rate of 0.1% in the latest quarter, and 0.5% compared to the same quarter last year, published in Scotland’s Gross Domestic Product on 4 October 2017.

     

ABOUT THIS PUBLICATION

Quarterly National Accounts Scotland (QNAS) includes a range of economic statistics for Scotland including:

  • estimates of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the onshore economy measured using all three of the output, income and expenditure approaches;
  • alternative estimates of GDP for Scotland including two illustrative shares of UK extra-regio (offshore and overseas) activities attributable to Scotland;
  • the Index of Manufactured Exports (IME);

  • Household & NPISH Sector income and expenditure accounts for Scotland, including Gross Disposable Household Income (GDHI) and the Savings Ratio;
