* As the Isle of Man uses the income method for calculating GDP and GNP, which largely relies upon Income Tax data, data coverage will continually improve the further away from the reference year that revisions are undertaken. In the 2009-10 revision, there were some significant companies that have been captured by the improved data coverage, and therefore has resulted in the upward revision of GDP. The 2009/10 revision was published on 7 November 2014 and the 2010/11 revision was published on 17 December 2015.
** Where no revised estimate is available, ESA10 revisions have been applied to the original estimate. Where a revised estimate is available, the revisions have been applied to this figure.
