Chapter 3 Footnotes

1 The rates of change discussed in this paragraph refer to current price changes and are not comparable with the rates of change implied by the Scottish GDP index, which is discussed in Chapter 1 and is compiled in constant basic prices.

2 See GES document at

3 The Annual Business Inquiry does not cover SIC 1.1 - 1.3 of the agriculture sub-sector. As a result, the GVA figure for agriculture has been taken from data held by RERAD. Data across the sub-sectors are therefore not directly comparable.

4 BERD cannot split forestry ( SIC 2) out from the food and drink sector.
