Description

Scottish Annual Business Statistics (SABS), which is largely sourced to the Annual Business Survey, provides data mainly on the Production (including Manufacturing), Construction and Service Sectors in Scotland. The main sectors not covered are the financial sector & parts of agriculture and the public sector. Data are classified according to industry group and geographical area. All figures are at current prices.

Variables include employment, employees, turnover, purchases of goods & services, approximate gross value added (GVA), gross wages & salaries, labour costs, total output and number of business units. GVA per head, gross wages & salaries per head and labour costs per head are also available.

Confidentiality Policy

Any cell which is blank contains confidential data. This is data which has been withheld from publication in order that no information relating to an individual business is disclosed. Caution should therefore be exercised if summary data is calculated; it may include blank cells in which case it will not be a true representation of industry or area totals.

Quality Management

The statistics have been produced under partnership procedures agreed between ONS and the Scottish Government (SG). Full methodology can be found here

Accuracy and Reliability

For information on quality measures, please see quality documentation.

Coherence and Comparability

Data can be compared between different industries, local authority areas and to look at trends over time. For comparisons with other UK regions, please visit Office for National Statistics website.

Accessibility and Clarity

For other Tables, commentary and more methodology please visit SABS website

Relevance

The Annual Business Survey, from which the statistics are largely derived, covers approximately two thirds of the economy. The main sectors not covered are the financial sector & parts of agriculture and the public sector. These statistics are therefore best suited to the analysis of individual industries rather than the economy as a whole. Industries (for this published data, this is defined in terms of Sections) are compiled using Standard Industrial Classification (SIC 07) codes. A SIC code is allocated to a business site according to its main activity.

Timeliness and Punctuality

It is the aim to publish Scottish Annual Business Statistics as soon as possible after the release of the Office for National Statistics' regional results. This means SABS figures are available approximately 18 months after the end of the calendar year to which they relate.

Revisions

Data is compiled from an annual survey. Please note that when a new year's Annual Business Survey (ABS) data is released, the previous year's data is revised at the same time.
