Methodological note

Gross Domestic Product per inhabitant (GDPph) is an economic variable which is used to indicate the economic level of a territory. In territories of a certain size it is a reliable measure of the welfare of the population.

Homogeneous comparisons of macromagnitudes between different economies require a specific unit of account: purchasing power parity (PPP). Its purpose is to homogenise the purchasing power of the residents in each territory in order to eliminate differences caused by the different price levels in the territories being compared.

To measure this economic variable in Catalonia, Idescat presents indexes for the EU-28, EU-15, EMU-19 and Spain. The information has two options:

  • GDP per inhabitant (GDPph)
  • Harmonised GDP per inhabitant (HGDPph)

At the end of this note there is a list of the countries included in each of the geographical areas.

GDP per inhabitant is obtained from Idescat's estimates of Gross Domestic Product (base 2010) and population on 1 July. The base for this GDP figure is the 2011 Input-Output Framework for Catalonia (MIOC) drawn up by Idescat.

Harmonised GDP per inhabitant is obtained from the GDP and population estimates for Catalonia in INE's Spanish Regional Accounting. Harmonised GDP (HGDP) has been drawn up using methods for dividing up the state variable, and hence the sum of regional estimates is congruent with the state total. As a result they are harmonised estimates.

Either GDP or HGDP can be used depending on the user's purpose. In this respect it is complementary information with differentiated analytical features.

The tables show the reference data used to build the indexes. In the case of HGDP the published index per inhabitant is calculated using GDP, population and PPP. By agreement between Eurostat and the EU Member States, the value of GDP of the "extraregio" activities are no longer divided between the rest of the territories of each State.

The comparison of macromagnitudes between different territories in the same state raises some specific problems similar to those found between different states. Eurostat assigns the same purchasing power parity to all the regions in a state, but the results of the regional comparisons could vary significantly if adjustments were made to include these differentials.

GDPph and HGDPph estimates are provisional to the extent that the original variables used in the calculation are too (GDP, population and exchange rates in purchasing power parities). Thus these data may be revised due to the inclusion of new statistical information.

Given the different timetable of availability of the magnitudes estimated by the INE, Eurostat and Idescat, the data update is carried out at different times. Therefore, the reference period of GDPph and HGDPph does not coincide with that of the Annual Economic Accounts for Catalonia until Eurostat does not update purchasing power parities.
