Statistiken: Final consumption expenditure (annual % growth)
Definition: Final consumption expenditure (annual % growth)
Average annual growth of final consumption expenditure based on constant local currency. Aggregates are based on constant 2010 U.S. dollars.

This estimate includes any statistical discrepancy in the use of resources relative to the supply of resources.

Because policymakers have tended to focus on fostering the growth of output, and because data on production are easier to collect than data on spending, many countries generate their primary estimate of GDP using the production approach. Moreover, many countries do not estimate all the components of national expenditures but instead derive some of the main aggregates indirectly using GDP (based on the production approach) as the control total.
Statistisches Konzept und Methodik: Final consumption expenditure (annual % growth)
Gross domestic product (GDP) from the expenditure side is made up of household final consumption expenditure, general government final consumption expenditure, gross capital formation (private and public investment in fixed assets, changes in inventories, and net acquisitions of valuables), and net exports (exports minus imports) of goods and services. Such expenditures are recorded in purchaser prices and include net taxes on products.
