Economy: Research and Experimental Statistics

This section provides users of economic statistics with details of ongoing develpment work in the production of economic statistics for Scotland. Comments from users are welcome. Many of the statistics appearing here are experimental, for which we are particularly keen for feedback, or in development. They should therefore only be used with caution and not out of context.
