    Can anyone suggest websites where I can access up to date data on trends in the UK primary, secondary and tertiary sectors?
    Is anyone teaching this spec in the Greater Manchester or West Yorkshire area?

  3. I use www.businessstudiesonline.co.uk in the AS theory section for OCR (Section 2) on Introduction to Business - Economic Sectors. This powerpoint explains the sectors as well as showing graphs from 1990 to 2007 - I know this is not exactly 'up to date' but our moderator has never had a problem with it.

    Thought you might be interested to know that I've just updated these figures with the latest data (upto and including 2010). A new interactive graph can be found at:

    Hope this is helpful.

  7. I used the Economist " Pocket world in figures"- 2010 edition will do. It shows country by country GDP by sector and employment by sector. I have used it with my current year 10 and will the unit will be moderated this summer- so we will see!
    You can get the book on fleabay for around £2.50
