Each quarter, the SECO estimates the GDP and its components. The main purpose of these estimations is to provide data that allow for an assessment of the cyclical development of the main macroeconomic aggregats in a timely adequate and credible manner.

Gross domestic product in 2nd quarter 2015 

Switzerland's real gross domestic product (GDP) grew by 0.2% in the 2nd quarter of 2015 compared to the previous quarter. The balance of trade in goods made a positive contribution to GDP growth because imports fell more than exports; on the other hand, the balance of trade in services had a negative impact. Consumption expenditure by private households and government together with investments also provided support for GDP growth in the 2nd quarter of 2015. Compared to the 2nd quarter of 2014, GDP grew by 1.2%; the GDP deflator decreased in the same period by 1.1%.
real GDP - percentage change to previous quarter and volume index: 2010:1-2015:2, volume index (2010=100), at prices of the preceding year, chained values, reference year 2010, seasonally and calendar adjusted data
