Errors have been found in the sector breakdowns of Gross Fixed Capital Formation (GFCF) published in Table A8.
Due to the integrated nature of the accounts, quarterly seasonally adjusted data for sector breakdowns of gross fixed capital formation (P.51), total gross capital formation (P.5) and subsequent aggregate series in the following tables are also affected: A19, A22, A22C, A26, A31, A36, A41, X2 and X7.
Annual and quarterly non-seasonally adjusted data for sector breakdowns remain unchanged.
This correction has no impact on the estimates of total GFCF and therefore no impact on Gross Domestic Product.
Corrected breakdowns of GFCF can be found in the Business Investment Q1 2013 Results – By Sector and Asset.
It is not possible to correct the affected series in the United Kingdom Economic Accounts until the next publication on 26 September 2013.
The following publications are also affected:
Quarterly National Accounts Q1 2013
The Business Investment Q1 2013 Results – By Sector and Asset

Publication of pre-1998 data
Following detailed quality assurance, ONS has today published GDP and UKEA datasets containing data pre-1998. Time series now start from the first available data point for all series.
For further information please contact email@example.com
The 2013 Quarter 1 Balance of Payments Statistical Bulletin and the 2013 Quarter 1 United Kingdom Economic Accounts, to be published on 27 June 2013, will not include a geographical breakdown (Table C in the Balance of Payments Statistical Bulletin and Tables B6, B6A, B6B and B6C in the UK Economic Accounts). This delay is necessary to complete sufficient quality assurance of these data. The geographical breakdown will be available to coincide with the publication of the annual Balance of Payments (Pink Book) on 31 July 2013.
ONS apologises for any inconvenience this may cause. Please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any queries on this announcement.
