The Gross domestic expenditure on research and development (GERD) time series dataset will no longer be updated. All new data released as part of GERD statistical bulletins in future will continue to be available in the datasets associated with the statistical bulletin.

The GERD time series dataset will remain on the Office for National Statistics (ONS) website as last updated on 4 August 2021, when the 2019 statistical bulletin was published. If there are any revisions to previously published estimates in future GERD publications, these will no longer be reflected in the GERD time series dataset.
