Revision policy

Gross domestic product by income and by expenditure, Balance of international payments, Financial flows, Labour productivity, International investment position, National balance sheet accounts

Preceding quarters of the year are revised when the current quarter is published. Each year, revisions extending back three years are made. They are not normally revised again except when historical revisions are carried out.

Gross domestic product by industry

Revisions arise from updates to benchmark data, projectors and seasonal adjustment. January to August: back to previous year; September: back to January of fourth previous year; October to December: back to January of current year. Occasionally, there are historical revisions due to conceptual, methodological and classification changes.
