As the demand increases for statistics and data to measure the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to change our data gathering and release practices, focussing efforts on priority analysis and statistics.

General description
Estimates of workplace based GVA allocate incomes to the region in which the economic activity takes place into different industries, giving the GVA amounts in £ million along with the percentage of 'all industries GVA' for each industry.

Data collection and calculation
Regional GVA is calculated at current basic prices using the balanced approach. In 2017, the ONS used both the Income and the Production approach, to produce a single estimate of GVA known as the balanced (GVA (B)) approach. More details on how this has been developed and calculated can be found in their consultation response, which Knowledge and Analytical Services contributed to. The GVA (B) estimates are currently classed as “experimental statistics”.
Data using the income approach is still available. This approach adds up all the income earned by resident individuals or corporations in the production of goods and services and is therefore the sum of uses in the generation of income account for the total economy (or alternatively the sum of primary incomes distributed by resident producer units) (National Accounts Concepts, Sources and Methods p206).

Rounding applied
Figures are rounded and so there may be some apparent slight discrepancies between the sum of constituent items and the totals as shown.

Statistical quality
Under the European System of Accounts 1995 (ESA95), the term Gross Value Added (GVA) is used to denote estimates that were previously known as Gross Domestic Product (GDP) at basic prices. Under ESA95 the term GDP denotes GVA plus taxes (less subsidies) on products i.e. at market prices. Regional Accounts publish figures at basic prices so have adopted the term GVA rather than GDP.
Regional GVA is measured in current prices, which means that increases over time reflect inflation as well as real growth. Trends in total GVA cannot be analysed easily without deflating the data. However, there are no regional price indices that could be used to remove the effect of inflation from the figures. Comparison of trends can therefore be based either on the difference between regional increases at current prices or on movements relative to the UK average. Both approaches would be misleading if the rate of inflation in any region were different from the UK average.
Estimates of regional GVA at basic prices presented here are consistent with the 2015 edition of UK National Accounts - The Blue Book.
