Contribution final expenditure to volume growth of GDP; National Accounts


This table presents economic growth data (percentage volume changes of gross domestic product) and the contributions to economic growth by expenditure components.

Gross domestic product can be calculated as the sum of final consumptions, gross capital formation and net exports. This expenditure approach allows to estimate the contribution of the various components of final expenditure to the volume change of GDP. For estimating the contribution, final expenditure components have to be adjusted for the incorporated imports. The adjusted final expenditure components sum up to GDP and are the bases of the calculation of the contribution of GDP growth. The attribution of imports to final expenditure components is performed using input-output analysis.

Contributions of final expenditure to GDP are provided in percentage points of GDP growth.
