On 28 March, HMRC released for the first time, Experimental Statistics that subdivides the existing Regional Trade in Goods Statistics (RTS) into smaller UK Geographical areas.
Recent stakeholder engagement has shown a clear appetite for this regionally allocated data at smaller geographical regions.
This release provides statistics for 2016 calendar year. We intend to publish a 2017 release in late 2018. We will look to incorporate any feedback we receive into that release.
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.
