The agenda will follow the format of:
- What’s new? - looking at the picture that recent economic statistics are portraying
- What’s next? - upcoming developments to economic statistics, including the latest information on changes that will come with Blue Book 2014. A summary of the main changes is available here
- A focus on a topical issue in economic statistics - further details to follow.
