Background

We wanted your views on a five year work plan for National Accounts and other outputs that have a close relationship. The work plan included revisions to legally required frameworks (European System of Accounts 2010, Balance of Payments Manual version 6) and guidelines beginning in September 2014.

We asked

What your views were on our five year work plan for National Accounts and other outputs that have a close relationship.

You said

  • You welcomed the publication of a work plan for National Accounts and related statistics.

  • You supported the ONS strategy and what it meant for the National Accounts work plan.

  • You thought that a monthly Gross Domestic product (GDP) estimate was not necessary.

  • You supported expanding the Business Investment publication.

We did

  • We agreed not to publish a monthly estimate of GDP.

  • We trialled Gross Fixed Capital Formation (GFCF) asset and industry breakdowns in the
    Second Estimate of GDP, and planned to continue developing these statistics.
