Annual business survey (ABS)

Bookmark and Share
  • Release date: 23 July 2014
An annual report, produced by the Office for National Statistics, which shows information from businesses including turnover, purchases, employment costs, capital expenditure and stocks.

These regional estimates, published in July of each year, are consistent with United Kingdom national results for the ABS released in the previous June. They do not cover the whole economy, omitting much of the public sector, finance and agriculture.

We have recently consulted on the way in which we signpost users to statistics published by another official statistics producers. As a result, in future key points for Wales for these statistics will no longer be published. The information will still be available on the Office for National Statistics website.
