Corrections

05 July 2018

ONS identified that the index values and growth rates for the Business Services and Finance sector within the Quarterly National Accounts publication were incorrect. These have now been amended. This correction affects tables B1, R, AA and AE and section 5 of the statistical bulletin.

The error did not impact any top-level data, so there is no impact on either GDP or Index of Services.

ONS apologises for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Notices

05 July 2018

As part of further quality assurance, we have identified some notable revisions to growth in the services industries between quarter 4 1997 and quarter 1 1998. These revisions have a particularly large impact on section K, which covers the financial and insurance industries. We are currently investigating to validate these revisions and will update this note when additional information is available. In the meantime we advise that users treat data contained within table B1 prior to 1998 with caution.

It should be stressed that any further revision following our investigation will only impact on the industry breakdown of GDP and not the top level estimates.
