New Estimates: Egypt - GDP(E)
Thursday, 06 Apr 2017 15:56 ET
By Dylan Horst
April 2017 -- For international consistency, Moody's Analytics estimates gross domestic product by expenditure for Egypt (25 new quarterly series from 1970).

Motivation: For the components of the expenditure approach to gross domestic product for the country of Egypt, multi-national sources report limited history at an annual frequency.

Response: For international consistency, we have estimated a full set of the components of GDP(E), at current and constant prices (a.k.a. nominal and real terms) and deflators, at a quarterly frequency.


  • Measurement: Millions of Egyptian pounds, at current (Mil. EGP) or constant year-2012 prices (Mil. 2012 EGP), or price deflators indexed to 2012
  • Adjustment: Seasonally adjusted annual rate (SAAR)
  • Frequency: Quarterly
  • Start date: 1965Q1 for nominal, 1970Q1 for real
  • Additivity: Aggregates equal the sums of components
  • Geo coverage: Nation

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

  • RNALEGDPAQ.IEGY = Gross domestic product, (Mil. EGP, SAAR)
  • RNACECGAQ.IEGY  = Government consumption, (Mil. 2012 EGP, SAAR)
  • RPDIIMAQ.IEGY   = Implicit price deflator - Imports, (Index 2012=100, SA)

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.
