Regional economic performance indicators
The Regional Economic Performance Indicators (REPI), formally known as Regional Competitiveness and State of the Regions, is an annual publication of a number of socio-economic indicators covering the regions of the United Kingdom.
The aim of the publication is to give a balanced picture of all the statistical information relevant to regional economic performance, competitiveness and the state of the regions. The indicators shown in REPI have been designed to enable regional comparisons, whilst time series can be used to investigate change over time. REPI is a compendium publication, containing regional information sourced from several different government departments, agencies and academic organisations.
The latest version of REPI was published at 9:30am on 21 September 2012. This publication consists of two parts: The set of indicators themselves in tables and a separate commentary on the indicators. Both of these can be accessed via the links below:
- Regional Economic Performance Indicators 2012 (XLS, 1.5 Mb)
- Commentary on Regional Economic Performance Indicators 2012 (PDF, 154 Kb)
- Annex Data Tables (XLS, 43 Kb)

Although REPI is released on an annual basis, some of the data included is updated more regularly or is available well in advance of the publication of REPI. From 2010, a set of parallel tables has been continuously maintained to reflect the updates in the source data. These Live Tables can be accessed here
Consultation on Regional Economic Performance Indicators
Last year, the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills launched a public consultation exercise to ensure the publication remains relevant to users. This consultation is now closed. The consultation document can be accessed below and a Government Response will be published before the end of the year.
