GDP Report Q2 2015
The National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), has been conducting Establishment Surveys to provide data for the estimation of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) for the country. In 2008, NBS started to improve the GDP series by conducting Quarterly Establishment Surveys (QES) for the four quarters of each year to complement the annual surveys which normally take place in the first and second quarters of the succeeding year.
In 2015, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) conducted the Quarterly Establishment Surveys for the first two quarters of 2015. These as well as previous surveys produced the data that was used for the compilation of the quarterly GDP for the four quarters of 2014 (Q1 – Q4, 2013) and the first and second quarter of 2015.
In subsequent sections of this report, emphasis will be given to the composition of GDP in the Second quarter of 2015 and the corresponding quarter in 2014.
