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).

A minor processing error has been identified and corrected in the current account balance as a percentage of GDP data. The error affected 2017 and 2018 quarters up to and including 2018 Q3. The error was due to a processing issue and did not affect the underlying current account balance or GDP estimates or any other outputs within the release.

ONS identified a processing error that caused Households Individual consumption expenditure (ABJQ) to be incorrect in the quarterly, current price, seasonally adjusted data for 1985 Q1 to 1986 Q4 published in tables 1.1.2, 6.2.6 and 6.2.12. This also affected Household Final Consumption Expenditure per head (CRXO) in table 1.1.5. The update has resulted in a small error to households’ gross saving of -0.01% which will be corrected in Blue Book 2019. A related issue was identified in table 6.2.12 for Household final consumption expenditure by purpose and goods and services for 1985 Q1 to 1996 Q4. The affected series were all current price, seasonally adjusted, quarterly data. We have corrected these errors. The affected growth rates have also been corrected. You can see all previous versions of this data on the previous versions page. We apologise for any inconvenience. The UK Economic Accounts release for Quarter 2 (Apr-Jun) 2018 contained pensions estimates that were affected by a misallocation of certain data from the private sector to the public sector in 2017 (and, very slightly, in Quarter 1 (Jan-Mar) 2018). This was due to an operational issue that has now been resolved. The series directly impacted were ‘Other social insurance benefits’ for households and financial corporations, with the largest impact of £800m in Quarter 3 (Jul-Sep) 2017, or approximately 2-4% of the actual size of the series directly affected. There are small indirect impacts on households’ disposable income, households’ pension entitlements and the alternative measure of the savings ratio, but no impacts on the overall households’ savings ratio or households’ net borrowing. The estimates will be corrected in the next publication of UK Economic Accounts on 21 December 2018. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Important notes and usage information

The Office for National Statistics (ONS), like all government departments, has to ensure all of its outputs meet accessibility guidelines. As a result, from the Quarter 4 (Oct to Dec) 2017 (29 March 2018) release onwards we will no longer be publishing a PDF file of the United Kingdom Economic Accounts (UKEA). The data contained in the current PDF file will continue to be available within the UKEA dataset and reference tables that are currently published.

5 July 2018

We have now completed the quality assurance of historic data for selected time series, see list below. These data have now been published within the United Kingdom Economic Accounts dataset for the time periods as indicated.
