Potential growth

SECO publishes periodically quarterly time series for potential output and output gap of the Swiss economy. Both measures are of importance for detecting the position of the economy in the business cycle. Apart, they are key indicators for short-term and medium-run forecasts of main figures for economic development. They are also the cornerstone for the construction of long-term scenarios for Swiss GDP.
