National Accounts articles: Detailed Assessment of Changes to Sector and Financial Accounts: 1997 to 2014
An update to the indicative impact of changes to the main non-financial and financial accounts (Sector and Financial Accounts) estimates and classification changes, being introduced when revised figures for the UK National Accounts, consistent with Blue Book 2016 and Pink Book 2016, are published on 30 June 2016. This article covers the period from 1997 to 2014.
The United Kingdom Statistics Authority has designated these statistics as National Statistics, in accordance with the Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007 and signifying compliance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.
Designation can be broadly interpreted to mean that the statistics:
- meet identified user needs
- are well explained and readily accessible
- are produced according to sound methods
- are managed impartially and objectively in the public interest
Once statistics have been designated as National Statistics it is a statutory requirement that the Code of Practice shall continue to be observed.
