Estimates of GDP are released on a monthly and quarterly basis. Monthly estimates are released alongside other short-term economic indicators. The two quarterly estimates contain data from all three approaches to measuring GDP and are called the First quarterly estimate of GDP and the Quarterly National Accounts. Data sources feeding into the two types of releases are consistent with each other.
UK gross domestic product (GDP) is estimated to have fallen by a record 20.4% in Quarter 2 (Apr to June) 2020, marking the second consecutive quarterly decline after it fell by 2.2% in Quarter 1 (Jan to Mar) 2020.
When compared with Quarter 4 (Oct to Dec) 2019, UK GDP decreased by 22.1% in Quarter 2 2020.
Despite the weakness in Quarter 2 2020, there was some pick up in June as government restrictions on movement started to ease.
