We have identified a discrepancy with the CXNV dataset with pre 1997 data on a number of series (EQDO, DFEG, DLWO, DLWL). The incorrect data has now been removed. This affects annual data. GDP data is unaffected. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
These estimates have been improved since the ad hoc series published after Blue Book 2013. The improvements have meant that the series, which were suppressed in the ad hoc release, have now been reinstated. However, there are still differences between the business investment chained volume measure seasonally adjusted estimates in this dataset and the official estimates published in the Business investment release. These differences are due to the different seasonal adjustment approaches. In this dataset, industry-level series are seasonally adjusted and aggregated. In the Business investment release, the asset-level series are seasonally adjusted and aggregated. This can give different results for the aggregated series. The estimates in the Business investment release should be considered the official statistics.
Please note that not all series will sum to totals due to rounding. These differences are well within the uncertainty of the estimates.
