Statistics Wales quarterly update: September 2019

September 2019 update for users of Welsh statistics on our latest developments, consultations and plans.


This is the latest in a series of quarterly updates, for users of Welsh statistics, on our latest developments, consultations and plans.

A full list of our most recent publications can be found on our upcoming calendar.

Economy and labour market

As well as the monthly updates to our key economic statistics, other recent updates include statistics on sub-regional productivity, regional economic and labour market profiles, shortterm output indicators and sub-Wales labour market analysis from the Annual Population Survey.

In July we re-launched the interactive Welsh Economy in Numbers dashboard. The dashboard presents key economic indicators covering income, economic output, work, poverty and wealth. It shows the latest statistics and historical context for Wales and the three economic regions, and illustrates how Wales compares with the other countries and regions of the UK.

On 5 September the ONS published the first estimates of quarterly GDP for the UK countries and the regions of England. These experimental statistics are the first official GDP estimates for Wales and are based largely on VAT turnover data. We published a statistical headline and a chief statistician’s update, which describes the key differences between the new series and alternative indicators. ONS will carry out a user consultation and we will also gather views from Welsh economic statistics users to understand how the data might be used.
