Geographical breakdown: Local Enterprise Partnership
Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) are partnerships in England between local authorities and businesses. They were created in 2011 following the abolition of Regional Development Agencies. Their role is to help shape local economic priorities and undertake activities to drive local economic growth and the creation of jobs.
This release provides, for the first time data, on economic output, as measured by nominal gross value added, for each LEP. A time series with data back to 1997 is included while the latest data available are for calendar year 2012.
The data have been produced to be consistent with the existing ONS regional Gross Value Added (Income Approach) data that are published annually in December for the NUTS geographies. As such, these LEP GVA data carry the National Statistics badge.
