As part of the Gross Fixed Capital Formation post production quality assurance process, errors have been identified in the Gross Fixed Capital Formation series. The following publications and associated time series have now been corrected:
Quarterly National Accounts - 2012 Quarter 1 and Quarter 2,
United Kingdom Economic Accounts - 2012 Quarter 1 and Quarter 2,
Business Investment - 2012 Quarter 1 and Quarter 2.
Chapter 9 of the 2012 edition of the Blue Book is currently inconsistent with these publications. Further quality assurance work is ongoing and a correction to the relevant Blue Book tables will be published as soon as possible.
For the Quarterly National Accounts, Q2 2012, originally published on 27 September 2012, the affected series and growth rates are in Table F.
The error affects quarterly data and annual data in 2004 and relates to the asset and sector breakdowns of gross fixed capital formation and their associated growth rates.
The affected series are:
NPEL, DLWF, KLQ9, KLQ5, DLWL, DLWO, DFEG, DLWT, EQDO, NPEN, EQDN, KLQ8, KLQ4, DLWJ, DLWM, DFDV, DLWQ and EQDT.
The error also affects annual data for series KLQ4 from 1997 to 2010.
