Changes to data collection/processing
The annual national accounts (income and expenditure) release has in the past combined provisional data (latest March year t) and balanced data (t-1 and prior) together in the same release. From the 2022 release, the national accounts (income and expenditure) release will contain final data only for balanced years (t-1 and prior) and will no longer include the latest provisional March year (t). This is with the exception of the capital stock series that will continue to be published as usual.
Provisional annual data for the latest March year (t) will be published together with the experimental quarterly National accounts (income, saving, assets, and liabilities): September 2022 quarter on 19 January 2023.
