Gross Value Added Briefing

Gross Value Added (GVA) is an indicator showing the contribution to the economy of each individual producer, industry or sector. In 2013 Cumbria's GVA was 9,674 million. Over the past decade, GVA has grown more slowly than the national average in Cumbria but the county was still the second fastest growing sub region in the north west and the 19th out of 37 nationally.  However, growth slowed in the second half of the decade and still lags behind that of the UK.  Manufacturing contributed a quarter of Cumbria's GVA in 2013, more than 2.5 times the national average with the next nearest sector, wholesale & retail, contributing 10.6%.  GVA per head of population in Cumbria in 2013 was 19,423, compared to 23,755 nationally.  For a full briefing on the detailed results for Cumbria, please use the link below.
