Quarterly Bulletin 1984 Q3
Published on 01 September 1984

The preceding article describes measures of profitability and the financial position of companies based on the national accounts. This companion article presents some complementary statistics derived from the reported accounts of large companies. Putting together these published accounts enables statistics to be constructed measuring the performance of individual industrial sectors.
