Q1 refers to Quarter 1 (Jan to Mar), Q2 refers to Quarter 2 (Apr to June), Q4 refers to Quarter 4 (Oct to Dec).
Contributions represent contributions to overall GDP growth.
These figures exclude the statistical alignment adjustment.
Components may not sum to total gross domestic product due to rounding and loss of additivity in data prior to open period. The statistical discrepancy is also not displayed.
As change in inventories and acquisition less disposal of valuables are change series, it is not possible to calculate fully additive contributions to growth. As a result, component contributions may not sum to total GCF.
