Today HMRC is pre-announcing a new statistical release of Trade in Goods broken down by UK areas smaller than the Regional Trade Statistics (RTS). This new release will be called Regional Trade in Goods Statistics disaggregated by smaller geographical areas and will be published at 09:30 on Wednesday 28 March 2018.
Tables will be published on a variety of geographical breakdowns and providing information on other variables where disclosure and our obligations to data providers allow.
The tables we will be producing in the first output are outlined below and will be annual data for 2016:
- NUTS2 by Flow and EU / Non-EU
- NUTS2 by SITC Section (1-digit) and flow and EU/Non-EU
- NUTS2 by Partner Country and flow and EU/Non-EU– The Partner Countries we will publish for will be the same we publish for the RTS. These are described in annex 2 (pages 20-25) in the published RTS Methodology
- NUTS3 by flow and EU / Non-EU
As these will be published as Experimental Statistics we will be welcoming comments once the data has been published.
