The value of Scottish exports to the rest of the world increased in 2015 as part of a long term upward trend.
In 2016, the average annual population growth rates since 2007 for Scotland and the EU15 were 0.50% and 0.41% respectively.
Scotland continues to have a high score for reputation, consistently rated in the top third of the 50 countries evaluated.
The gap between Scotland and the average EU nations R&D expenditure has widened – since 2001, expenditure in the rest of the EU has increased at a higher rate than that in Scotland.
The percentage of adults who engaged in a cultural activity remained stable between 2012 and 2016. The survey question was changed in 2012. Previously the percentage had remained fairly stable since 2007.
The percentage of pre-1919 dwellings classified as having disrepair to critical elements has remained on a downward trend since 2012.
Scotland’s annual GDP growth rate, on a 4Q on 4Q basis, has been lower than that of the Small EU Countries since the third quarter of 2015. The duration and scale of this gap has been influenced significantly by recent revisions to the Republic of Ireland’s GDP time series. For more information please visit scotlandperforms.com.
