The Office for National Statistics have just released their Preliminary Estimate for Gross Domestic Product for Quarter 4 of 2011 which shows a predicted, but disappointing, negative quarter on quarter figure of -.2%.
The tracking we noticed with Q4 registrations appears to be continuing but fortunately our worst fears did not materialise.
As .uk registrations for the first couple of months of 2012 are published by Nominet we will start producing some very tentative estimates of GDP for the first quarter caveated with massive health warnings!
If the GDP figures are revised significantly by the ONS we will repost this graph.
All our data is annualised. Base data is quarter on quarter change.
