GDP quarterly estimates

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 3rd quarter 2015
Switzerland's real gross domestic product (GDP) stagnated in the 3rd quarter 2015 (0.0%). Positive contributions to GDP came from private (household) and public con-sumption. The balance of trade in goods  also contributed positively to GDP, whilst the balance of trade in services by contrast had a negative impact. On the production side healthcare and the insurance sector experienced the strongest growth. GDP grew by 0.8% compared with the 3rd quarter 2014; the GDP deflator (implicit price index) reduced by 1.2% in the same period.
