Monthly Economic Commentary: October 2018

Analysis of the latest estimate of gross domestic product and economic commentary for prices, short-term indicators and labour market indicators to complement theme day economic commentary for October 2018.

Statistics release cancelled

From July 2018, we are moving from having three quarterly estimates of GDP to two, and introducing monthly GDP. Under this new model the role and timing of the MEC will need to change. Having reviewed the different products that will be available under the new model, we have decided that it makes the most sense to move from publishing a monthly economic commentary to a quarterly economic commentary. This will be published alongside the quarterly national accounts and will cover a range of topics across economic statistics.
