Regional economic indicators ‐ with a focus on the relationship between skills and productivity
SummaryThis quarter, the focus section of the Regional Economic Indicators article explores the influence of workforce skills on the economic performance of the NUTS 1 regions. The regular part of the article then gives an overview of the economic activity of UK regions in terms of their gross value added (GVA), GVA per head and labour productivity. This is followed by a presentation of headline indicators of regional welfare, other drivers of regional productivity and regional labour market statistics. The indicators cover the nine Government Office Regions of England and the devolved administrations of Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. These 12 areas comprise level 1 of the European Nomenclature of Units for Territorial Statistics (NUTS level 1) for the UK. The term ‘region’ is used to describe this level of geography for convenience in the rest of this article.
