Key points

  • The longer term trend (latest four quarters compared to previous four quarters) for the Index of Market Services increased for both Wales and the UK (up 0.1 per cent and up 2.7 per cent respectively). The increase in Wales is largely accounted for by increases in output from Transport, Real Estate Activities and Administrative & Support Service Activities, whilst the increase in the UK is mostly accounted for by Distribution, Professional, Scientific & Technical Activities and Administrative & Support Services Activities.
  • Over the shorter term (latest quarter compared to previous quarter) output fell in Wales and increased in the UK (down 0.6 per cent and up 1.0 per cent respectively). The fall in Wales is across several sectors, with the largest fall in the output of Professional, Scientific & Technical Activities whilst the increase in the UK is largely accounted for by increases in the output of Distribution, Professional, Scientific & Technical Activities and Administrative & Support Services Activities.
