In Blue Book 2019, Office for National Statistics (ONS) will introduce a new framework to produce GDP, both in current prices and in volume terms. Estimates of the impact to current price and chained volume measure estimates for gross domestic product (GDP) from 1997 to 2016, planned for publication in September 2019.
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.
