We have identified an error within our production of GFCF and Business Investment transport estimates in 2021 Q2 and 2021 Q3. There will be no impact on GDP.
This is because we balance our GDP estimates using an alignment of the different approaches to measuring GDP, so the impact from this error would be offset during our balancing process. This is because the new data increases the level of expenditure and we were previously adjusting up this approach to GDP to align to the other GDP measures. As part of our production process GDP estimates will be updated in-line with the National Accounts revision policy in the next release on 22nd December 2021.
