The table shows the effect of the revision on government net-lending and debt (EMU-debt). The effect is broken down by the effect of the ESA2010 implementation and the effect of the data and method revision. The table is based on a questionnaire sent by Eurostat to all member countries in May 2014. The government net-lending and EMU-debt are two important key figures used by the EU-Commission to monitor if the member countries satisfy the EMU-criteria in the EU treaty. The estimates are preliminary.
The completed questionnaire shows the Danish answer to a questionnaire that has been distributed to all EU Member States. It shows the percentage change to GDP in 2008 divided into components of the ESA2010 implementation and other changes to data and methods.
This note describes the main effects on GDP and GNI as a result of the major revision published on 15th September. GDP is adjusted upwards by 2,53 per cent and GNI by 2,06 per cent in 2008. The total effect is split into implementation of ESa2010 and other changes to data and methods. The note also describes the revisions to the main components of GDP from the supply side and the use side.
