Hugh Bayley

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what the annual per capita GDP for York unitary authority area was in each year since 1995. [135948]

Ruth Kelly

The information requested falls within the responsibility of the National Statistician. I have asked him to reply.

Letter from Colin Mowl to Mr. Hugh Bayley, dated 10 November 2003: The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your recent question on annual per capita GDP for York unitary authority. I am replying in his absence. (135948) The latest available data on Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for York unitary authority were published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) in April 2001 and relate to the period up to 1998 and the area of York on the "NUTS3" area classification. ONS published estimates of Gross Value Added (GVA) for the larger "NUTS2" area of North Yorkshire, of which York is a part, for the period 1995 to 2001, in October 2003. Both sets of estimates are shown in the table.

GDP per head in York and GVA per head in North Yorkshire

At current basic prices, £ per head of population

GDP per head in York

(NUTS3 area)

GVA per head in North Yorkshire

(NUTS2 area)

1995 11,750 *10,077
1996 12,565 *10,622
1997 13,742 11,192
1998 14,305 11,719
1999 12,119
2000 12,585
2001 13,031


1. All estimates are provisional except where indicated with an asterisk.

2. Estimates of workplace based GVA allocate income to the region in which commuters work.

3. GVA estimates are calculated using a five-period moving average.

4. GDP = GVA + taxes on products—subsidies on products.

Estimates of NUTS3 GVA, including for York, for the period 1995—01 are planned for publication by ONS in December 2003.
