Data

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.

Changes to this release date

  • Previous date:
    12 August 2020
    Reason for change:
    The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak presents a significant challenge to the UK, and the Office for National Statistics (ONS) is working to ensure that the UK has the vital information needed to respond to the impact of this pandemic on our economy and society. During this pandemic, we are working hard with UK business to get the information we need to produce high quality statistics to inform decision making. But inevitably the disruption caused by the pandemic means we need a little extra time to quality assure some of our data before publication. Therefore, we are announcing a short delay to our GDP and Retail sales publication dates for the next few months to allow us additional time for data processing and quality assurance to ensure the highest possible level of accuracy. Please see our statement on how we are responding to the coronavirus illness. https://www.ons.gov.uk/news/statementsandletters/covid19andtheproductionofstatistics
