Our monthly estimates of GDP suggest that output grew by 0.6 per cent in the three months ending in October after growth of 0.5 per cent in the three months ending in September 2015. This implies that reasonable economic growth has continued into the fourth quarter of 2015.

* NIESR’s latest quarterly forecast (published 4th November 2015) projects GDP growth of 2.4 per cent per annum in 2015 and 2.3 per cent in 2016 (see here for the associated press release).
