Release Information

For Switzerland, the expenditure approach to gross domestic product (a.k.a. "use of GDP") from the quarterly national accounts. From 1980.

The source produces national accounts data in current prices (CHF) and in real terms, as well as seasonally adjusted and not seasonally adjusted. Real data in millions of chaned 2010 CHF are published with implicit deflators. The source publishes GDP for multiple expenditure categories. 

The Swiss QNA are compiled by a so-called indirect estimation approach, based on temporal disaggregation techniques. Quarterly estimates are derived from the available annual data, using statistical methods and quarterly indicators. The accuracy of the preliminary annual estimates, obtained as the sum of the quarterly estimated values, depends to a large extent on the quality of the available and retained quarterly indicators. For seasonal and trading days adjustment, Swiss QNA currently relies on the X13-Arima-Seats method.

Framework: ESA 2010.

Switzerland aggregates GDP(E) to "domestic demand" and "total demand".
