GDP User Survey 2021 (closed on 13 August 2021)

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to unprecedented changes in the economy and the way in which we measure it. Over the last year, the Scottish Government has developed some new statistics to track the economy in a more detailed and timely manner than ever before, but has also had to scale back some other work.

During the summer we ran a short online survey, which will help us to understand how our statistics are being used, what is valued and what could be improved in our current publications, and what should be the main priorities for our developments in the coming year.

copy of the survey is still available online. Although we have closed the online collection of views, if you would like to contact us about any aspect of our GDP statistics then please email us at

We are currently reviewing the responses to the survey and will provide an update on our plans in due course.
