Removal of tables from trade industry and contracts statistical bulletin
Since 2018 the following tables and related figures have been removed from Trade, Industry and Contracts as they do not meet the quality standards required for an Official Statistics due to data quality issues:
direct expenditure with SMEs
new contracts let with SMEs
MOD estimated balance of payments for trade in services.
The Analysis-Expenditure team continues to provide data to ONS to feed into the UK Balance of Payments figures and is monitoring the availability of the data sources required to produce accurate SME statistics.
Balance of Payments Update
The balance of payments table is planned to be discontinued from Trade, Industry and Contracts from the 2021 edition onwards. If you have any comments regarding this change then please email Analysis-Expenditure-PQ-FOI@mod.gov.uk.
