In the case of services, the information is detailed in three groups of branches:
From a demand point of view, the GDP analyses the final use of goods and services produced in the Catalan economy, depending on whether they are aimed at final consumption, investment or foreign trade.
Idescat produces quarterly data on Catalonia's GDP from the standpoint of supply and demand and disseminates the results at current prices, in indexes by volume, and the corresponding quarterly and annual variations.
