Forestry Statistics 2009 - 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 UK Standard Industrial Classification (SIC 2003). 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 2003 to 2007, GVA in primary wood processing increased by 13% to 1.67 billion. GVA in forestry has undergone a net increase of 22% over the same period.
