A further change improved the regional allocation of gross trading profits through the use of data from the Annual Business Survey.

These estimates are experimental and last weeks GVA (income based) figures [GVA(I)] should be regarded as the official GVA estimates. The estimates published by the ONS today show GVA in ‘real’ terms (using Chained Volume Measures, CVM) using the production approach [GVA(P)]. Where the GVA(P) results differ significantly from the existing GVA(I) measure, the latter should take precedence. GVA(P) current price estimates are included in the ONS publication to enable users to compare the two current price measures directly. For more information see the ONS website.
