Index of Production (IOP) Statistical Bulletin and Tables - Quarter 3 2023

Date published: 14 December 2023


Latest Results - Quarter 3 (July - September) 2023


NISRA recently consulted on proposed changes to statistical outputs, this output was part of that consultation. The consultation, which ended on 15 October, sought views from users and stakeholders to help NISRA to address the financial constraints imposed by the budget settlement for 2023-24, whilst minimising the impact on users and stakeholders. The full report on the outcome of the consultation, including users’ responses, actions planned and mitigations, can be found on the consultation webpage.     

Northern Ireland Quarterly Index of Production Proposal: The statistical bulletin will be reduced to headline results only and analysis of subsectors (for example manufacturing) will also be removed. The bulletin will be reduced from 23 pages to approximately 5 pages. Data will continue to be provided in the existing supplementary tables, with the number of supplementary tables remaining the same (approximately 20 tables).

Northern Ireland Quarterly Index of Production Action: NISRA has proceeded with scaling back the statistical bulletin as planned with consideration to some detail of subsector analysis still included in the reduced bulletin.

Date proposed change will come into effect: 14 December 2023.

Tables are available in XLSX and ODS.
