New Estimates: Kuwait - Nominal GDP(E)
Monday, 09 Sep 2019 07:08 ET
By Kelli Johnson
Summary
September 2019 -- To supplement our estimates of GDP by expenditure at constant prices for Kuwait, Moody's Analytics now estimates the corresponding current-price indicators (seven new quarterly series from 1965).
Detail

Motivation: Our national source, the Central Statistical Bureau of Kuwait, reports the expenditure components of gross domestic product at current prices, but with limited history (from 2010) and only at an annual frequency. 

Response: For international consistency, we have estimated GDP by expenditure at current prices, with extended history, and at a quarterly frequency. 

Properties:

  • Measurement:  Millions of Kuwaiti dinar (Mil. KWD)
  • Adjustment: Seasonally adjusted annualized rate (SAAR)
  • Geo coverage: Country
  • Native frequency: Quarterly
  • Start date: 1965Q1

The estimates reside in the Kuwait historical catalog (Kuwait » National Accounts » by Expenditure » Moody's Analytics Estimated » Current Prices) and include, for example:

  RNALEGDPAQ.IKWT = National accounts: Gross domestic product, (Mil. KWD, SAAR)
  RNALECGAQ.IKWT = Government consumption
  RNALETBAQ.IKWT = Trade balance

Because catalog locations are subject to change, the upper-right search box on DataBuffet.com provides a "find in catalog" mode that accepts a mnemonic.

Method: Please refer to the background documentation in Mnemonic 411.
