General Description
Abstract:
GDP measures the final output of goods and services produced by the domestic economy. Most countries estimate GDP by the production method. This method sums the final outputs of the various sectors of the economy (e.g., agriculture, manufacturing, and government services), from which the value of the inputs to production have been subtracted. The average annual growth rates of GDP are least-squares estimates of the real growth of output. Growth rates are computed from constant price data to exclude the effects of inflation. Annual percentage growth rate of GDP at market prices based on constant local currency. Aggregates are based on constant 1995 U.S. dollars. GDP measures the total output of goods and services for final use occurring within the domestic territory of a given country, regardless of the allocation to domestic and foreign claims. Gross domestic product at purchaser values (market prices) is the sum of gross value added by all resident and nonresident producers in the economy plus any taxes and minus any subsidies not included in the value of the products. It is calculated without making deductions for depreciation of fabricated assets or for depletion and degradation of natural resources. Data are from the World Development Indicators 2001 CD-ROM http://www.worldbank.org/data
