Methodological note

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) measures the final result of the production activity of the production units in a territory. There are three vantage points for analysing GDP: supply, demand and income.

  1. From the standpoint of supply, GDP makes it possible to evaluate the contributions made by the different productive branches to the economy as a whole (gross value added of agriculture, industry, construction and services).
  2. In order to conduct the analysis from the standpoint of the end-use of the goods and services produced (consumption, investment, external sector), GDP calculated from the demand side is used.
  3. Finally, from the income standpoint, GDP makes it possible to give a breakdown of the contribution made by the productive factors to production: compensation of wage-earners (labour), gross operating surplus (capital) and mixed income.

The detailed results for forty-four sectors of activity are presented in the section of monographic information Annual Economic Accounts for Catalonia.

The annual estimates based on 2010 GDP and its supply, demand and income components are final for the 2000–2014 period and the estimates of later years are provisional, therefore they are susceptible to be revised. The estimates of 2017 and 2018 are advances taken from short-term indicators.

The series on Spain that are published correspond to the 2019 Benchmark revision implemented by the INE in its magnitudes of the Annual Spanish National Accounts. These new series have been drawn up upon the basis of the updates of the statistical sources and estimation methods, within a harmonized review project with Eurostat and the European Central Bank.

The series on the Annual Economic Accounts for Catalonia will be reviewed in accordance with the current calendar (March 2020).
