This is how the different sectors of the British economy have performed in the first three months of this year:
- Agriculture, forestry and fishing - Fell by 3.7 percent compared with 0.5 percent contraction in the previous quarter.
- Construction - Output decreased by 2.5 percent capping off a 5.9 percent decrease in the year to March 2013.
- Production - Grew by 0.2 percent following a decrease of 2.1 percent in the previous quarter. This growth was driven by mining and quarrying, and electricity supply.
- Services - 0.6 percent growth was the driving force behind the growth in overall GDP. This picture of positive growth was seen across the sector.
Official figures revealed Britain dodged a much-feared triple-dip recession with growth of 0.3% in the first three months of the year.
Today's news that a triple dip recession has been averted means very little in economic terms, but politically it is critical.
The latest GDP figures show Britain has avoided another recession, but the long-term picture is of an economy that remains resolutely flat.
