Provides files to download data as it existed for this dataset on previous dates.

Statistics are most often revised for 1 of 2 reasons:

  1. For certain statistics initial estimates are released with the expectation that these may be revised and updated as further data becomes available.
  2. Revisions may also be made when methods or systems are changed.

These types of planned revisions should not be confused with errors in released statistics, which are genuine mistakes. Such mistakes occur rarely and, when they do happen, corrections are made in a timely manner, announced and clearly explained to users in line with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics (Principle 2, Practice 7).

Important notes and usage information

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.
