Announcement of change to United Kingdom Economic Accounts (UKEA) and Balance of Payments (BoP) CDIDs

EA17 is changing to EA18 in the next United Kingdom Economic Accounts (UKEA) and in the Balance of Payments (BoP) publications.

Changes will affect Tables B6 and B6A, in the UKEA.

Latvia joined the Euro Area on 1 January  2014, therefore the 2014 Quarter One edition of the UKEA will include Latvia within the time series for transactions with Euro Area 18 (EA) members shown in tables B6 and B6A. As a result of this change to coverage, all the time series for transactions with Euro Area members will have new four character identifiers - there will be changes in identifiers for Trade in Services, Trade in Goods, Trade in Goods and Services, Income, Current Transfers and Total.

Below is a list of the old four character identifiers that will be changed in the 2014 Quarter One edition of the UKEA.
