GDP monthly estimate: November 2022

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) statistics measure changes in the output of the economy. This is an experimental statistics publication for Scotland.

Main Findings

  • Scotland’s onshore GDP is estimated to have fallen by 0.1% in November, after growing 0.7% in October.
  • Output in the services sector, which accounts for around three quarters of the economy, is estimated to have remained flat (0.0% growth) in November. At the broad level, output in consumer facing services grew by 0.7%, while health, education and public services output grew by 0.5%, and output in all other services fell by 0.6%.
  • Overall output in production, construction and agriculture fell by 0.4% compared to the previous month.
  • In the three months to November, GDP is estimated to have been flat (0.0% growth) compared to the previous three month period. This reflects a slight improvement during current quarter so far, after output fell by 0.1% in 2022 Quarter 3 (July to September).

All results are seasonally adjusted and presented in real terms (adjusted to remove inflation), and relate to Scotland’s onshore economy (which does not include offshore oil and gas extraction). Further information can be found in the full publication (pdf) and tables.
