United Kingdom from the Author: International Monetary Fund. This Selected Issues paper examines national accounts revisions and the economic cycle for the United Kingdom. The paper concludes that upward revisions to GDP data are positively correlated with economic activity, in particular, with growth in its domestic component. The paper suggests that although revisions may have become smaller in recent years, the procyclical bias in the data revision has not been eliminated. The regression model employed also suggests that GDP growth in 1996—currently estimated at 2.4 percent—could be as much as a 0.6 percentage point higher than that estimate.

The basic conclusion is that low inflation in recent years can be explained reasonably well by a combination of increased competitive pressures. The paper also presents some estimates of the degree of possible overvaluation in housing prices and outlines the links between housing prices and the macroeconomy.
