April 2013 GDP estimates

Author(s): Kirby, S Published: 09th April 2013

 

Our monthly estimates of GDP suggest that output grew by 0.1 per cent in the three months ending in March after growth of 0.1 per cent in the three months ending in February 2013. Production sector output picked up sharply in February 2013, but this was largely a reversal the sharp drop in output in January. Our estimates suggest that both production sector output and the broader economy were broadly flat in the first quarter of this year.
