This timeseries dataset has not been updated for Q2 2013.

ONS has been reviewing the Business Investment release and as a result, the Q1 2013 release trials a new approach, and includes sector and asset breakdowns of GFCF not previously available in the release. These are available from the Reference Tables section of the release, and a long time series dataset is available in the Quarterly National Accounts Q2 2013 release.

We would welcome feedback on the inclusion of sector and asset breakdowns, and on how else the release might be improved, in either its content or presentation.

We have recently undertaken a significant programme of work to improve our estimation of gross fixed capital formation (GFCF) and business investment, and most of  that work has been successfully completed. We have not only implemented an improved methodology, but we will also be able to reinstate the asset by sector breakdown series in the UK National Accounts (Blue Book) 2013 which have been suspended in recent years.
