Letter from Colin Mowl, dated 18 January 2007:

The National Statistician has been asked to reply to your recent question on gross domestic product (GDP) for the nomenclature of units for territorial statistics (NUTS) area most closely corresponding to a) Peterborough city council area and b) Peterborough constituency in each of the last five years. I am replying in her absence. (115579)

Peterborough is the NUTS level 3 region which most closely corresponds to the Peterborough city council and Peterborough constituency areas. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) does not publish regional GDP but does publish estimates of regional gross value added (GVA) for the NUTS3 areas, for the period 1995 to 2004. Estimates of NUTS3 GVA, including data for Peterborough, were published in December 2006. The estimates for GVA for Peterborough for the last five years are given in the attached table.
