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).

ONS identified that a publication error caused the annual total change in inventories series (ABMQ) to appear incorrectly within the UK National Accounts, The Blue Book: 2018 publication. This correction affects the 1997 value in table 1.3. This issue only impacts the value in table 1.3 and does not impact any aggregations dependant on the non-seasonally adjusted, chain volume measure inventories figure, GDP included. This has now been amended.

ONS apologises for any inconvenience this may have caused.

The excel table relating to the Financial balance sheet, published on 31 October 2017, incorrectly included data for CDID identifier NGAL HH & NPISH (S.14 + S.15): Foreign currency loans by UK banks. We have obtained data relating to the correct CDID and re-run the table in order to populate the time series dataset. The data are now identifiable on the following tables as: 6.1.11 - NNRI

The time series dataset was also affected by this issue and has since been corrected. There is no impact on any other Blue Book series or any aggregates. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
