Scottish Government Consultation Response


This consultation is now closed. The consultation documents are available below as part of the public record.

As part of the commitment to continuous improvement to the processes used in all their publications, Scottish Government statisticians have been reviewing the data and methodologies within the Government Expenditure & Revenue Scotland (GERS) publication. As a result, a number of changes were proposed for the 2016-17 publication. The consultation sought users' views on these changes, which were discussed at the annual meeting of the Scottish Economic Statistics Consultation Group on 25 April May 2017.
