List of ceremonial counties in England by gross value added
This is a list of ceremonial counties in England by gross value added for the year 2013. Data is gathered by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and is given in terms of Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS), statistical area codes used for the European Union, which loosely follow administrative units of the United Kingdom.
Gross value added (GVA) is a measure of the value of goods and services produced in a localised area without considering taxes and subsidies (unlike gross domestic product (GDP). Additionally, the ONS's estimates on GVA adapt to regional disparities in commuting regions by allocating the GVA to the area in which an employee commuted from. They also use five-period moving averages to smooth data.
- GVA data includes the ceremonial county of the City of London.
- GVA data is for two ceremonial counties: Leicestershire and Rutland. Rutland's population represents 4% of the total population.
- GVA data excludes all of the borough and unitary authority area of Stockton-on-Tees, which are listed uder County Durham instead. Parts of Stockton-on-Tees fall south of the River Tees and thus inside North Yorkshire's borders.
- GVA data is for the non-metropolitan county of Gloucestershire (as South Gloucestershire is combined with North Somerset and Bath & North East Somerset in the data set).
- GVA data includes all of the borough and unitary authority area of Stockton-on-Tees; some of which spills south of the River Tees and thus includes parts of the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire.
- GVA data is for the non-metropolitan county of Somerset (as North Somerset and Bath & North East Somerset are combined with South Gloucestershire in the data set).
