Economic & Labour Market Review, 2007, vol. 1, issue 1, 19-26
Introduces the new journal and provides a retrospective review of compendia publications of official statistics and analysis.Since its first publication in 1953, Economic Trends and its companion labour market publications have recordedchanges to the UK economy and labour market. In this new publication, Economic & Labour Market Review,the Office for National Statistics brings these two fields of economic statistics into a single publication. As patterns ofeconomic activity and work change, the interdependence of these two strands is increasingly apparent to those who useand produce statistics alike.This article serves as both an introduction to the new journal and as a retrospective review of compendiapublications of official statistics and analysis. It offers a historical overview of the developing presentation of economicand labour market statistics. It also presents a range of official UK economic statistics that characterise the periodsince the Second World War, and also extend further back for aspects of the labour market.
