Forestry Statistics 2007 - Finance & Prices

Gross value added

previous | next  

The Annual Business Inquiry (ABI) carried out by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) includes statistics on gross value added broken down by Standard Industrial Classification (SIC). The ABI was extended to include forestry from 2000. Gross Value Added (GVA) is the difference between the value of outputs and the value of intermediate consumption, so mainly comprises employment costs and profits.

From 2001 to 2005, GVA in primary wood processing decreased by 9% to 1.4 billion. GVA in forestry is reported to have increased by 10% over the same period.
