The purpose of this consultation is to gather and assess user opinions on the changes proposed following a review of the methodology used to compile workplace-based and residence-based estimates of regional Gross Value Added (GVA) in the Regional Accounts.
We would appreciate feedback on the following proposals:
the proposal to introduce independent measures of workplace- and residence-based Compensation of Employees (CoE) at the NUTS1 level of regional geography (Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics)
the proposal to apportion corporate profits to regions using total Gross Operating Surplus/Mixed Income (GOS/MI) instead of using workplace CoE at all levels of regional geography
More details of the proposed changes and the results of an impact analysis can be found in the article and reference tables published with this consultation.
The consultation period begins with the publication of this document and will close on Friday 30 August 2013. Please ensure that your response reaches us by then.
When responding, please state whether you are responding as an individual or representing the views of an organisation. If responding on behalf of an organisation, please make clear who the organisation represents and, where applicable, how the views of members were assembled.
