IA National Data Service – July 2021 Data Update


June 2021 monthly and 12 monthly rolling average data was released only at the beginning of July. Data updates will figure in the August blog update.

Economy & Employment

Claimant Count (June 2021) was last updated on the 15th of July. All affected reports were published by the 17th of July.

Gross Value Added (GVA) for the year 2019 was updated on the 6th of July.

In the economic accounts, the economy is split into institutional sectors, that is, units broadly grouped according to their role in the economy. The GVA measures the increase in the value of the economy due to the production of goods and services. It is measured at current basic prices, which include the effect of inflation, excluding taxes (less subsidies) on products. GVA plus taxes (less subsidies) on products is equivalent to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) [Source ONS: UK Regional Accounts Methodology Guide].
