As part of its commitment to continuous improvement, ONS periodically reviews and where appropriate improves the data sources, methods and processes used for compiling estimates. As part of this commitment, in the 2013 UK National Accounts new production systems were introduced for compiling investment estimates, which included improved data sources, methods and processes.
