from the JEDHub.

The UK Defence Solutions Centre is home to the Joint Economic Data Hub (JEDHub) and is a collaborative initiative to improve the understanding of the defence sector’s contribution to the UK economy. Designed to provide better, consistent, and impartial data, the JEDHub is supported by government, industry and academia.

JEDHub considers the economic contribution the defence sector makes to the UK economy in a number of ways – including its national and regional contribution; its contribution to skills and productivity; as well as its impact on international trade and the broader UK supply chain.

The latest 2024 Annual
Economic Report is
