Correction

11 January 2013

An error was identified in some of the Gross Fixed Capital Formation (GFCF) breakdowns and subsequently corrected in the following publications:

  • Quarterly National Accounts - 2012 Quarter 1 and subsequent releases

  • United Kingdom Economic Accounts - 2012 Quarter 1 and subsequent releases

  • Business Investment - 2012 Quarter 1 and subsequent releases

However, due to the ongoing development of systems and new methods for GFCF estimates it is not possible to correct Chapter 9 and Table 8.4 of Blue Book 2012 until the finalisation of Blue Book 2013 data.

ONS apologises for any inconvenience caused. For further information please contact gcf@ons.gsi.gov.uk
