Series breaks occur when data are affected by survey changes that are not 'organic' but arise from one period to another because of factors such as the introduction of a new bank to the survey; a bank relinquishing its registration; the sale of assets; merger with another institution or a change in substance in business practice that interrupts a 'like for like' time series.
The sector lending annual growth rates have are adjusted for series breaks.
