What is the JEDHub?
The Joint Economic Data Hub (JEDHub), based in the UK Defence Solutions Centre, is a collaborative initiative to improve understanding of the defence sector's contribution to the UK economy. Designed to provide better, consistent, and impartial data, the JEDHub is supported by government, industry and academia.
JEDHub considers the economic contribution the defence sector makes to the UK economy in a number of ways - including its national and regional contribution; its contribution to skills and productivity; as well as its impact on international trade and the broader UK supply chain.
