Scottish National Accounts Programme (SNAP)

The Scottish National Accounts Programme (SNAP) aims to enhance the scope of economic statistics in Scotland and to improve consistency and comparability between measures.

Experimental Statistics In Development

Gross National Income (GNI) and primary income accounts

An intitial estimate has been made of a balance of payments income account for Scotland. This estimates income inflows and outflows with the rest of the UK and the non-UK rest of the world. Taken collectively, these flows represent Scotland’s net employment income and net property income from abroad, which allow Gross National Income (GNI) to be derived from GDP.

These statistics are currently classed as experimental statistics. These are defined as new official statistics undergoing evaluation, and are published in order to involve users and stakeholders in their development. Users should note that experimental statistics may be particularly prone to revisions as methodologies and data sources are improved.

Estimates of long term economic statistics for Scotland

These statistics are currently classed as experimental statistics. These are defined as new official statistics undergoing evaluation, and are published in order to involve users and stakeholders in their development. Users should note that experimental statistics may be particularly prone to revisions as methodologies and data sources are improved.
