Correction Notice

Region and Country Profiles – Economy, May 2012

A production error was discovered in the reference table download, originally published on 30 May 2012. This also affects the Regional Profiles (Summaries) for the North West and the South West

Within the table 'Subregional - business births and deaths', birth and death rates were calculated incorrectly. These figures were also included in the Regional Profiles for the North West and the South West.

This error has now been corrected.

ONS apologises for any inconvenience caused.

The tables provide a wide range of economic and labour statistics to compare the countries of the UK, regions of England and local authority areas. A summary for each English region provides key facts and figures about the economy, businesses, employment and unemployment in the area.

Also in this series: Population and Migration; Social Indicators; Environment (forthcoming); Key Statistics tables; Key Statistics including Region and Country Profiles (forthcoming summer 2012). A larger set of tables were previously published as Regional Trends Online Tables.
