Gross Domestic Product (GDP) Quarterly National Accounts (QNAS) statistics for 2019 Quarter 4 (October-December).

A National Statistics Publication for Scotland

This publication contains results which date before the COVID-19 pandemic. It includes the updated second estimate of onshore GDP growth in real terms for the final quarter of 2019, the cash value and additional breakdowns of GDP, and key household sector statistics.

The way that we work is changing in response to COVID-19, and the Scottish Government is developing new monthly economic statistics which will help to track the impact on the economy. Further details can be found on page 9 of the full publication.
