|Review of early estimates of construction output for GDP
The then DTI and Office for National Statistics published their final report into the early estimates of construction output for GDP in 2003 on 1st December.
The report, available at http://www.berr.gov.uk/sectors/construction/ConstructionStatistics/TransferReview/page20915.html built on an interim report published on 12 February 2003. It explored why there were revisions to the estimates of construction sector output growth between Quarter 1 and Quarter 2 2003 and what they were, and looked into the scope for improving these early estimates.
The findings of the review, including revised estimates for this period, were incorporated into the Output and Employment in the Construction Industry Statistical Press Release published on 3 December by the then DTI and in the Quarterly National Accounts First Release published by ONS on 23 December 2003.
