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).

Important notes and usage information

Each classification of individual consumption by purpose (COICOP) class is grouped by the estimated "import intensity" of final household consumption. "Import intensity" refers to the percentage of final household consumption that is directly due to imports. This does not include the effect of goods that are imported and then used as inputs for goods produced domestically. As imports data are provided on a classification of products by activity (CPA) basis, which is not directly comparable to the COICOP classification, these estimates should be seen as indicative.
