These figures update the GDP(I) estimates from 2009Q1 (published on 31 August 2009) to 2009Q2. A number of methodological changes have been incorporated into this release, the key changes being:

  • the computations are now performed for 31 separate industries before aggregating into published totals;
  • the Compensation of Employees component now makes greater use of Short-Term Employment Survey (STES), Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE) and Annual Business Inquiry (ABI) data; and
  • GVA associated with offshore oil extraction now uses unpublished background data from the UK National Accounts.

The following spreadsheets show the revisions between the two versions GDP(I) Revisions 2009Q1 to 2009Q2

26 Oct 2008 Table 1 - GVA analysis by SIC - Scotland and UK less Extra Regio - based on Regional Accounts 2006 The figures are consistent with the UK National Accounts Blue Book 2006. This relates to the latest set of Regional Accounts for which an industrial breakdown has been published.
26 Oct 2008 Table 2 - GVA analysis - Scotland and UK less Extra Regio - based on Regional Accounts 2007

The figures are consistent with the UK National Accounts Blue Book 2007. However, as the 2007 Blue Book was not balanced - i.e. the income, production and expenditure measures of GDP were not reconciled, a statistical adjustment was introduced to reconcile the income measure with the overall estimate. Table 2 reallocates the adjustment pro-rata across regions and countries. ONS did not publish SIC analysis for 2007.
