Summary Comments

Final Consumption Expenditure

  • Household final consumption expenditure grew by 1.0% in trend terms (0.6% seasonally adjusted). The main contributors to growth were Rent and other dwelling services and Recreation and Culture.

Gross fixed capital formation
  • Private business investment increased 4.5% in seasonally adjusted terms. The seasonally adjusted increase was due to investment in New machinery and equipment (up 5.9%), New engineering construction (up 6.6%), and Total intangible fixed assets (up 8.1%). Dwelling investment fell -0.2% seasonally adjusted, driven by a fall of -0.7% in New and used dwellings which was only partially offset by a 0.3% rise in Alterations and additions.

In seasonally adjusted terms, total inventories increased by $932m following a $1,956m increase in the previous quarter. As a result, Changes in inventories detracted 0.4 percentage points from seasonally adjusted GDP growth during the quarter.

Exports and imports of goods and services
