Methodological note

GDP at market prices is the final result of the production activity of resident producer units.

Gross domestic product (GDP) is a measure for the results of the economic activity. It is defined as the value of all goods and services produced minus the value of any goods or services used in their creation.

Total population: On a given date, the total population of a country consists of all persons, national or foreign, who are permanently settled in the economic territory of the country, even if they are temporarily absent from it. This means that total population is defined using the concept of residence rather than nationality. Population figures from National Accounts may vary from those of population statistics.

From September 2014 onwards, the European Union is enforcing a new European system of accounts (ESA 2010), which details the methodology to be used in compiling estimates of the national accounts of all European Union member states.

Data for Catalonia are calculated from GDP per inhabitant 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.

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).
