Release Information

The Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics (IBGE)  reports quarterly GDP statistics. The data set includes industry level gross value added (production approach) at current prices and as chained volume indexes. Net taxes on products, GDP, consumer expenditure, government expenditure, gross fixed capital formation, changes in stock, imports, and exports are calculated using the expenditure approach. 

Figures are chained volume indexes set to 1995=100 (Ch. Vol. Index 1995=100). The data is also available at current prices (Mil. BRL). Series available as seasonally adjusted (SA) and not seasonally adjusted (NSA). 

Valuation is GDP at market prices ("PIB pm" or "produto interno bruto a preço de mercado"). Market prices are used to valuate flows and stocks in the Brazilian national accounts. Output is valued at basic prices, and intermediate consumption is valued at purchase prices excluding the deductible part of the value-added taxes. Total exports and imports are valued on a f.o.b. basis. Transactions in foreign currency are converted to the national currency using the mid-point between the selling and buying exchange rate, thus excluding the financial service from the value of exports.

The active framework is the UN System of National Accounts, SNA 2008. Discontinued series exist under SNA 1993.

The industry classification is NACE Rev. 2. Discontinued series are available under NACE Rev. 1.0.

In March 2007, a revision of the national accounts series were done introducing new data sources and updating concepts establishing 2000 as a new reference year.

No systematic revisions are made, but quarterly data are adjusted to annual data using a benchmarking procedure.
