This is a methodological note regarding the change and impact in data source for 'Other mining and quarrying' sector, in ProdCom.



  • Revised and previous estimates for Division 8

    Revised and previous estimates for the other mining and quarrying sector for 2008 to 2016 following a methodological change from the Annual Minerals Raised Inquiry to the Prodcom survey.

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.
