Dashboard: Assessing the UK post-referendum economy

ONS produces a wide range of economic statistics, which will increasingly contain data periods which fall after the UK vote on EU membership that was held on 23 June.

We have compiled this dashboard to aid understanding of the post-referendum economy.

The commentary and trends to consider information is not a forecast or prediction of whether the statistics will show any discernible effects of the EU referendum result but are to help comprehension of how these data are potentially impacted by the international and domestic economic environment as we move forward in time.

Economic commentary: January 2017

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) introduced its new economic “theme days” in January, which will ensure that related economic statistics are released together.

Commenting on today’s GDP figures, ONS Head of GDP Darren Morgan said:

“The initial ONS data show the economy ended 2016 with steady growth of 0.6% for the third consecutive quarter.

“Strong consumer spending supported the expansion of the dominant services sector and although manufacturing bounced back from a weaker third quarter, both it and construction remained broadly unchanged over the year as a whole.”
