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 regarding the calculation of the Real disposable income implied deflator for both the households sector and households and non-profit institutions serving households combined sectors published with the Quarterly Sector Accounts statistical bulletin (Table HH2 and HH Alt) and UK Economic Accounts (Tables 6.1.4, 6.2.4 and 6.2.14) 2019 Quarter three releases.

31 October 2019 UK Economic Accounts table 1.1.12 (Consumption of fixed capital): Due to system issues, ONS were unable to publish quality assured capital consumption data for 2018 and 2019 for the Non-financial corporations, Financial corporations and Households and Non-profit institutions serving households sectors at the time of publication. Updated data now shown in this table for 2018 and 2019 have been reviewed and are now fully consistent with the Quarterly National Accounts publication. 31 October 2019 An error has been identified within the Trade in Services by country split and impacts tables B6, B6A, B6B, B6B_2, B6B_3, B6C, B6C_2, B6C_3 within the ‘UK Economic Accounts: balance of payments - current account’ publication tables as well as the corresponding time series. This was caused by a processing error within Trade and does not affect the whole world totals for Trade and the current account. This error has resulted in the below annual impacts: Trade in services for Russia; exports, imports and balance for 2015 and will indicatively increase by £1.0 billion for exports, £0.3 billion for imports and £0.7 billion for the balance. This will also impact total trade in goods and services and the total current account for Russia. Trade in services for USA, exports and balance for the years 2010 to 2018 and has indicative average change of £0.4 billion per year for exports and balance. This will also impact total trade in goods and services and the total current account for the USA. Trade in services for Hong Kong, exports and balance for 2012 and will indicatively decrease by £0.4 billion for exports and balance. This will also impact total trade in goods and services and the total current account for Hong Kong. Smaller impacts will also be seen for the other countries noted within these tables alongside the EU and EMU within the time period 1999 to 2018 for trade in services, total trade in goods and services and the total current account by country. Total trade in services and all other data in this release is not affected. The data has now been corrected we apologise for the inconvenience.

ONS identified a processing error that caused Households Individual consumption expenditure (ABJQ) to be incorrect in the quarterly, current price, seasonally adjusted data for 1985 Q1 to 1986 Q4 published in tables 1.1.2, 6.2.6 and 6.2.12. This also affected Household Final Consumption Expenditure per head (CRXO) in table 1.1.5. The update has resulted in a small error to households’ gross saving of -0.01% which will be corrected in Blue Book 2019. A related issue was identified in table 6.2.12 for Household final consumption expenditure by purpose and goods and services for 1985 Q1 to 1996 Q4. The affected series were all current price, seasonally adjusted, quarterly data. We have corrected these errors. The affected growth rates have also been corrected. You can see all previous versions of this data on the previous versions page. We apologise for any inconvenience. The UK Economic Accounts release for Quarter 2 (Apr-Jun) 2018 contained pensions estimates that were affected by a misallocation of certain data from the private sector to the public sector in 2017 (and, very slightly, in Quarter 1 (Jan-Mar) 2018). This was due to an operational issue that has now been resolved. The series directly impacted were ‘Other social insurance benefits’ for households and financial corporations, with the largest impact of £800m in Quarter 3 (Jul-Sep) 2017, or approximately 2-4% of the actual size of the series directly affected. There are small indirect impacts on households’ disposable income, households’ pension entitlements and the alternative measure of the savings ratio, but no impacts on the overall households’ savings ratio or households’ net borrowing. The estimates will be corrected in the next publication of UK Economic Accounts on 21 December 2018. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Important notes and usage information

The Office for National Statistics (ONS), like all government departments, has to ensure all of its outputs meet accessibility guidelines. As a result, from the Quarter 4 (Oct to Dec) 2017 (29 March 2018) release onwards we will no longer be publishing a PDF file of the United Kingdom Economic Accounts (UKEA). The data contained in the current PDF file will continue to be available within the UKEA dataset and reference tables that are currently published.

As a result of the increased challenges and uncertainty in balancing quarterly GDP in this release, expenditure and income alignment adjustments for the quarters of 2019 do not sum to zero over the year.

While this alignment adjustment adds to both expenditure and income GDP in 2019, it does not change the annual 2019 rate of GDP growth to 1 decimal place. We will look to reconcile these differences in Blue Book 2021 in line with the National Accounts Revision policy.

This can also be seen in the revisions table 1.1.13 in the National Accounts Aggregates; Gross operating surplus of corporations and inventories.
