Applying methodological change in gross domestic product (GDP) calculation to quarterly data


The Member States of the European Union, including Hungary, compile their national accounts from September 2014 in compliance with the EU Regulation of the Parliament and of the Council (ESA2010) adopted in May 2013. The aggregates of the annual data meeting the new methodological requirements are represented by the indicators of gross domestic product (GDP) and gross national income (GNI), which were issued in our publication titled “National Accounts of Hungary, 2013 (preliminary data)” on 30 September 2014.


The time series of quarterly data calculated according to the new methodology, adjusted to annual figures, will be published on our website, in the Tables (STADAT) menu item, two weeks earlier than planned, simultaneously with the first release “Gross domestic product (GDP), 3rd quarter 2014 (flash estimate)”. The detailed seasonally adjusted data will be issued on the originally planned date, on 3 December 2014.
