Provides files to download data as it existed for this dataset on previous dates.

Statistics are most often revised for 1 of 2 reasons:

  1. For certain statistics initial estimates are released with the expectation that these may be revised and updated as further data becomes available.
  2. Revisions may also be made when methods or systems are changed.

These types of planned revisions should not be confused with errors in released statistics, which are genuine mistakes. Such mistakes occur rarely and, when they do happen, corrections are made in a timely manner, announced and clearly explained to users in line with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics (Principle 2, Practice 7).

An error has been identified with trade in goods and total trade data for South Sudan only. This has impacted Quarter 1 (Jan to Mar) 2016 to Quarter 2 (Apr to Jun) 2019 for exports and imports and has resulted in a change of £11 million for South Sudan. This was due to a processing error and does not affect any other country. We have now corrected this and apologise for any inconvenience.
