Make sure your games business is counted in official statistics
The Creative Industries are worth an incredible £10m per hour to the UK economy, according to the most recent government statistics: games are a huge part of that and will continue to grow.
But there are still some issues with the baseline data used to count the games sector's contribution to these figures and we can do something to change this.
