The intermediate release updates the first release to 2005 but for a limited number of variables (24). The industry aggregations are similar to the additional files of the March 2007 release and cover a limited number of industries. The data for 2005 and possible revisions for earlier years is mainly based on preliminary data from the national accounts. In addition it provides labour and capital input data consistent with the growth accounts.
