In March 2018, HMRC released experimental statistics that subdivided the existing Regional Trade in Goods Statistics (RTS into smaller UK geographic areas (2016)) for the first time.
Following user feedback, we are making this an annual publication, each November. This release reports on trade in goods at NUTS2 and NUTS3 for 2017.
These are being published as Experimental Statistics. The reasons for this are:
- to allow us to build in improvements to the methodology, data included, visuals, etc.;
- to allow external users to provide feedback on the publication so that enhancements can be made to future releases.
