Experimental Statistics: data being developed
These statistics are currently being developed and have been published to involve users and stakeholders in their development, and to build in quality and understanding at an early stage.
These statistics have not yet been assessed by the UK Statistics Authority. They have not been designated as National Statistics.
The capital returns submitted to the Scottish Government were reviewed with a view to bringing them more into line with the data collected on revenue expenditure. The main change was that the quarterly capital returns would cease in their current format and be replaced by a new Capital Provisional Outturn and Budget Estimates (CPOBE) data collection. This publication is based on data from this new collection.
