Derbyshire Economic Review - Summer 2020

The document is a quarterly publication and provides an overview of some of the latest statistics and news on the Derbyshire economy along with some national context.
The data in the document mainly relates to quarter two of 2020, so reflects the emerging economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic. More data on how the economy is being affected will be coming out in the weeks and months ahead and we will look to incorporate this into our future reporting.
