2. Monthly GDP is a preliminary indicator, and is subject to revision. UK GDP was recently revised up in the GDP Quarterly National Accounts, meaning that UK GDP was around 1% below pre-pandemic levels in June and July. These revisions may not be reflected in results for Scotland until the next GDP Quarterly National Accounts for Scotland is published. Until then users should be cautious about making comparisons between different vintages of statistics. On a like for like basis, the most recent data show that Scotland has continued to broadly track the UK during the pandemic.
