Key figures, quarterly national accounts

The purpose of the quarterly national accounts is to give an overall picture of the short-term economic development in the context of a coherent system of definitions, classifications and accounts.

Key figures for the quarterly national accounts show the main results for the economy. The balance of demand and supply shows the supply in the form of Danish production (GDP), imports and use in the form of household consumption, government consumption, consumption of NPISH (non-profit organizations serving households), gross fixed capital formation, changes in inventories and exports.
The quarterly national accounts calculation is based on all current short-term statistics that show areas of the economy and employment. The main sources include: external trade, balance of payments, corporate buying and selling, the retail sales index, manufacturing sales of goods, industrial production and new orders, consumer and net price index, the price index for domestic supply, labour accounts and quarterly public finances.
