Due to a production error, capital consumption and gross capital employed have been corrected from 1997 to 2006. This has also led to corrections to net operating surplus and net capital employed 1997 to 2006 and to net rates of return 1997 quarter 1 to 2006 quarter 1.

The series affected are:

  • BGXZ: Capital consumption for total PNFCs

  • LRWW: Net rates of return for total PNFCs

  • LRWM: Net operating surplus for total PNFCs

  • LRWT: Gross capital employed for total PNFCS

  • LRWU: Net capital employed for total PNFCs

  • LRWV: Gross rate of return for total PNFCs

  • BGYC: Capital consumption for total Non-UKCS

  • LRXP: Net rates of return for total Non-UKCS

  • LRXH: Net operating surplus for total Non-UKCS

Incorrect estimates were published on the 10 July. These were all series prior to 1997 and quarterly estimates for series other than the rates of return. These have now been removed.

ONS apologises for any inconvenience caused.

This statistical bulletin, produced by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) every quarter, shows the net rate of return on capital employed for UK PNFCs’ related to their UK operations.
