Om de huidige toestand van de Belgische economie te evalueren, actualiseert het FPB regelmatig een reeks indicatoren. Die indicatoren betreffen de macro-economische situatie van de economieën van België, zijn drie buurlanden en de eurozone, alsook de transportsector.
Gross domestic product
Growth rates in %
Description: Gross domestic product (GDP) measures the total final market value of all goods and services produced within a country's borders during a given period. GDP is the most frequently used indicator of economic activity and is most often measured in volume terms on an annual or quarterly basis to gauge the growth of a country's economy between one period and another. GDP is also a measure of total consumer, investment and government spending plus the value of exports minus imports.
Unit: Volume measures, seasonally and working day adjusted growth rates in %
