Local authority estimates of international exports, by destination
Note: These may be large files.
This uses the Export Statistics Scotland data to produce local authority estimates of international exports by destination for 2016 and 2017. These are being produced as experimental statistics, which are published in order to involve users and stakeholders in their development and as a means to develop the methodology and data.
This data has been subject to disclosure control methods to ensure that company specific details and any data from which it might be possible to identify individual companies published.
Following the collection of data on exports, the data are cleaned and quality assured by Scottish Government statisticians. Outputs are subject to rigorous quality assurance and where possible other sources are used to review figures.
This data is based on Export Statistics Scotland data which is a National Statistics publication, certified by the UK Statistics Authority as compliant with its Code of Practice for Official Statistics. This data is classified as experimental statistics which means the statistics are in the testing phase and not yet fully developed.
There is no UK dataset which compares exactly with Export Statistics Scotland data. HMRC have published experimental statistics which disaggregates their Regional Trade Statistics into smaller geographic areas.
Although not comparable with this data, it provides some estimates of Scottish exports of goods only at a regional level for 2017. Similarly, ONS have produced experimental estimated values of exports of services for 2016 for NUTS2 and NUTS3 geographies. Although not comparable with this data, it provides some estimates of Scottish exports of services at a regional level for 2016.

This data are of interest to local government, central government, development agencies, politicians, the business community, economic commentators, academics and members of the general public with an interest in the Scottish economy.
The Export Statistics Scotland publication is published every January and this data is then used to produce these estimates. It will be updated on an annual basis.
Estimates for previous years are revised from those published in the previous year and are largely due to new information being provided by companies. The most recent results are provisional, and are likely to be revised in the future when improved information becomes available. Revisions may also take place as the methodology continues to be developed.
This slice of multidimensional data is not a Linked Data resource in the database: it's a virtual resource (i.e. you can't query it by SPARQL). But does have a permanent unique URL which can be bookmarked.
