Scotland's economy paper: facts and figures

Yesterday we launched “Scotland’s Economy: the case for independence”, the paper which outlines the potential for economic growth in an independent Scotland.

This document contains the main arguments for taking economic decisions affecting Scotland out of Westminster and up to Scotland, giving these important powers to the people it will affect.

Below are a number of graphics with some key points from the paper including tax revenue generated by Scotland, the structure of Scotland’s economy by industry, how our economy is structured by employment, GDP, and the value of Scottish exports around the world.
