Industry results

Total output in the services sector, which accounts for around three quarters of the economy, remained flat in June (0.0% growth).

Within services, at the broad level, output in consumer facing services fell by 0.6%.

Output in health, education and public services fell by 0.3% in June, after also falling in May and April, mostly due to further reductions in NHS test and trace and vaccination activities.

Output across all other services grew by 0.4% in total, with increases seen across most of the information, financial and business services subsectors.

Overall output in production, construction and agriculture fell by 3.1% compared to the previous month. This includes a fall of 8.6% in the electricity and gas supply industry after wind power generation fell back from the high levels seen during May.

Within production, manufacturing output fell by 3.3% in June, with reduced levels of output in many of the subsectors. Manufacturing continues to be quite volatile from month to month, with output remaining below the level seen in 2019.

Construction output is estimated to have fallen by 1.3% in June, after growing by 1.9% in May.
