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) in volume terms was estimated to have increased by 0.4% in Quarter 3 (July to Sept) 2019, revised upwards by 0.1 percentage points from the first quarterly estimate.
When compared with the same quarter a year ago, UK GDP increased by 1.1% to Quarter 3 2019; revised upwards by 0.1 percentage points from the previous estimate.
At headline level, the GDP dataset is largely unrevised, with 0.1 percentage point revisions to Quarter 4 (Oct to Dec) 2018 and Quarter 3 2019; revisions reflect the inclusion of annual benchmarks from a number of sources for 2018 and the incorporation of administrative Value Added Tax turnover data in the output approach to measuring GDP for Quarter 2 (Apr to June) 2019.
