This briefing provides an easy-to-use commentary on the key economic indicators for UK businesses. The report also provides a comparison between the economic data compiled by external organisations such as the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and the BCC's own Quarterly Economic Survey and economic forecast.

This month's headlines:

• BCC upgrades GDP forecast, service sector output and consumer spending to drive growth.
• UK’s statistical double-dip recession may be revised away, but outlook still challenging.
• The Eurozone and a potential upturn in inflation are key risks to the UK economy.
