Production account

The production account records the transactions related to gross output and intermediate consumption. The resulting balancing item is gross value added. The value added of the total economy is the sum of the value added from all economic activities and sectors. After adjustments, this corresponds to the gross domestic product (GDP). Three different representations of the production account are available: by economic sector, by institutional sector and by economic activity. The latter is presented in two different groups (50 economic activities, some grouped into sections). The results are available at current prices and in change rates at previous year's prices.
