To improve accessibility to ONS data, the United Kingdom Economic Accounts will be presented in Excel reference tables only from the Quarter 3 2012 release published on 21 December 2012. The Quarter 2 2012 release published on 27 September 2012 will be the last version available as a portable document format (PDF).

This change in format will enable data to be presented by sector for a longer time period (annually and quarterly) and move from the condensed time series currently contained in the PDF tables. Versions of these reference tables have been published with the Quarter 2 2012 release for users to familiarise themselves with the format.

These National Statistics are produced to high professional standards and released according to the arrangements approved by the UK Statistics Authority.
