    Abstract

    Scottish economic statistics produced by the Scottish Government have improved considerably over the last decade and are more comprehensive than for any other part of the UK and for many devolved administration internationally. We now publish a wide range of statistics on the Scottish economy, ranging from GDP, labour market indicators, productivity, international trade to a full set of national accounts and detailed Input-Output tables. Over the coming year we are taking forward an extensive programme of work to further enhance Scotland’s economic statistics. This will include, developing estimates of GNI for Scotland, bringing forward the publication of GDP and estimating a set of accounts for Scotland to include the North Sea.
