Estimating the value of service exports by destination from different parts of Great Britain: 2015

This is the first time we are publishing service export figures by country of destination for countries, regions and industries in Great Britain; our analysis includes around 45% of total service exports and excludes finance, travel and transport because of data limitations.

London dominated the absolute value of service exports to the EU, contributing 42% of the total EU exports (around £15.6 billion) in 2015.


UK environmental accounts: 2017

In 2015, UK households became the biggest users of diesel fuel for road use (DERV), overtaking the "transport, storage and communications" sector for the first time.

The energy efficiency of the UK economy (as measured by its energy intensity) improved in 2015, the continuation of a long-term trend due largely to energy efficiency improvements in the manufacturing and "transport, storage and communications" sectors.

Deaths registered in England and Wales, provisional: week ending 30 June 2017

The provisional number of deaths registered in England and Wales in the week ending 30 June 2017 (week 26) was 9,334; this represents a decrease of 293 deaths registered in comparison with the previous week (week 25).

The average number of deaths for the corresponding week over the previous 5 years was 8,956.

How have the prices of everyday items changed since 2005?

The price of our everyday goods and services has been in the headlines, with inflation rising to 2.7% in May, its highest point since April 2012. ONS inflation experts looked at the change in prices of consumer goods and services dating back to 2005. They found a number of notable changes in prices between 2005 and 2016.

Consultation on the National Statistics definition of alcohol-related deaths

ONS reports annual trends on deaths associated with alcohol consumption based on a set National Statistics definition. However, different definitions are used across government to measure alcohol-related mortality, with the total number of deaths varying substantially.

We are consulting on the National Statistics definition of which causes of death should be recorded as alcohol mortality with the view to having a harmonised approach.
