Increase of 6.9% in GNP in 2014

Figure 1 Growth Rates

Detailed annual national accounts show that Gross National Product (GNP) increased by 6.9% in constant prices between 2013 and 2014.

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) increased by 5.2% over the same period. The present release is based on more complete and up to date data than that which was available when the Q4 2014 estimates were published in March 2015. The 2013/2014 volume changes indicated at that stage were GDP (4.8%) and GNP (5.2%).

The results are compiled in accordance with the latest EU standard framework, ESA 2010.

Growth by sector in 2014

Four of the five main sectors distinguished in Table 4 showed positive growth in 2014. The Agriculture, forestry and fishing sector advanced by 17.6%, while three of the other main sectors had annual increases ranging from 4.2% to 7.1%. Public administration and defence shrank, for the sixth year in succession, in 2014 by 0.3%.

Exports up 12.1% in 2014 on the expenditure side

On the expenditure side of the accounts exports grew by 12.1% between 2013 and 2014 (Table 6, at constant prices). Imports increased also, by 14.7%, over the same period. The results for gross fixed capital formation now include additional investment for aircraft leasing companies (see note below). Its growth rate in 2014 from the higher level was 14.3%. Personal consumption expenditure increased by 2.0% while Government net current expenditure rose by 4.6%.

 

NOTE on revised data: This release includes significant revisions to National Accounts statistics. The most significant methodological revision this year is due to recording of trade in aircraft on a "transfer of economic ownership" basis. Under the new methodology, all trade in aircraft with the rest of the world is recorded as imports and exports of goods – regardless of where the aircraft is registered for aviation purposes. There are offsetting effects as both imports and exports increase, but generally, the new methodology has a greater effect on aircraft imports with the inclusion of purchases of aircraft by resident operational leasing companies in Ireland’s imports of goods. The net increase to Imports of Goods and Services (item 84 in Table 5) in the National Accounts is offset by an increase in Capital Formation (item 81 in Table 5) and the new methodology has no effect generally on GDP and GNP. However, there is a significant increase to the National Accounts Provision for depreciation (item 28 in Table 2 ) based on the higher capital stock, which results in an offsetting change in the level of Net Value Added at Factor Cost (item 13/27 in Tables 1 and 2 respectively) and related aggregates.

The technical note (http://www.cso.ie/en/surveysandmethodology/balanceofpayments/methodologydocuments/) gives more detail on the revised trade in aircraft methodology and explains the impact the revisions have on Trade in Goods, National Accounts and Balance of Payments.

In this table the total amount available for investment, (i.e. current savings, the provision for depreciation, net foreign capital transfers and net foreign disinvestment) is equated to gross domestic physical capital formation. The figures for capital formation are obtained by adding figures for imported and home produced capital goods ready for use to the value of the physical changes in stocks, including the value of the changes in agricultural stocks. Since personal savings (item 129) is a residual figure it includes the effect of the changes in agricultural and certain other stocks. Personal savings accordingly includes a substantial non-monetary element.

Background Notes

Introduction

This release contains the first detailed results of the main National Accounts aggregates and their components for 2014. It includes revisions for all years from 2009 to 2013. The estimates for the most recent years, especially 2014, are based on provisional indicators for the different aggregates and are subject to revision. (A preliminary estimate of the 2014 outturn was already provided in the quarterly accounts release for Q4).

National accounts are compiled in the EU according to the European System of National and Regional Accounts (ESA) framework. ESA 2010 is the European version of the current UN mandated international standards for national accounts statistics, the System of National Accounts (SNA) 2008.  The results for all years in this release are published on an ESA 2010 basis.

 

Nace Classification

In compliance with EU regulations the NACE Rev. 2 classification system is used in tables 2 to 4. This change was introduced in the National Income and Expenditure 2011 release. The NACE Rev. 2 replaces the national classification system which was used up to NIE10.

The results for the economy continue to be shown for five sectors whose titles remain the same as in previous releases and publications. However the contents of the sectors conform to the NACE Rev. 2 system.

One of the main changes resulting from the NACE Rev. 2 classification is that the “Publishing” industry has been reclassified from “Industry” to the sector “Distribution, transport, software and communication”. This latter sector now also contains the “Hotels and catering sector” which had previously been included in the “Other Services” sector. The “Software” industry was also included in “Other Services” in the old National Classification but is now part of the new category “Distribution, transport, software and communication” in the NACE Rev 2 classification. The overall effect on the tables has been that the “Distribution, transport, software and communication” sector accounts now for a much larger share of the total GVA of the economy than in the old national system while the sectors classified as “Industry” and “Other Services” account for a lower share.

In tables 2 to 4 the following is the correspondence with the relevant sections of Nace Rev. 2:

Agriculture, forestry and fishing Section A
Industry Sections B to F
Distribution, transport, software and communication Sections G to J
Public Administration and Defence Section O
Other Services Sections K to N and P to U

Methodology

In Ireland, Gross Domestic Product (GDP) at current prices is calculated using two approaches viz. the income and expenditure approaches. The main components of the income estimate are (1) profits of companies and of the self-employed, (2) remuneration of employees (wages, salaries, pensions and employers’ contributions to social insurance) and (3) rent of dwellings (imputed in the case of owner-occupied). Adjustments are made in respect of stock appreciation (to eliminate the effect of price changes on the level of stocks). On the expenditure side estimates are made of personal expenditure on consumers’ goods and services, expenditure by public authorities on current goods and services, gross domestic fixed capital formation and the value of physical changes in stocks. The value of exports is then added and imports are deducted.

The two approaches (income and expenditure) should theoretically give the same answer. However, they will always diverge to some extent as they are measured using different data sources. The components of the two original estimates are shown unadjusted. The official level of GDP is taken to be an average of the expenditure and income estimates and a balancing item is displayed which is half of the difference between the two estimates. This is the amount by which both estimates have to be adjusted to agree with the official level of GDP.

A more detailed description of the Irish national accounts methodology is available at National Income and Expenditure Annual Results 2014 Methodology Note (PDF 210KB)

Volumes

At constant prices, two measures (output and expenditure) are used. These measures are being produced using annual chain linked indices. On the output side, for each pair of successive years, the volume growth measures at a detailed level are weighted together using value added weights of the first year. Similarly, on the expenditure side, annual growth estimates are weighted by previous year expenditure weights. The average of the two measures is the official growth measure used. The change over a period of years is then calculated by linking together the annual changes. The estimates in this release are referenced to 2013 values.

FISIM

The revenue from the margin on lending and borrowing by financial intermediaries (mostly banks) is called financial intermediation services indirectly measured (FISIM). This margin is taken as the output of non-invoiced services produced by these financial intermediaries and has been included in the calculation of GDP since the publication of the 2004 annual results and the Q1 2005 quarterly results in July 2005.

The estimates in this release are based on more detailed and more recent data than that available at the time of publishing the quarterly estimates for 2014. In particular they incorporate revisions to the Balance of Payments figures for recent years and revised unit value indices for merchandise trade.

Quarterly Accounts

A quarterly national accounts release incorporating these latest annual results for the quarters of 2014 and earlier years is also being published today. This includes an estimate for the first quarter of 2015. The previously published estimates for the quarters of earlier years are also revised.

Definitions

Gross Value Added at factor cost

is equal to the sum of the values of the goods and services (or parts thereof) produced in the country without deducting an amount in respect of capital consumption (i.e. depreciation). It excludes taxes on production and includes subsidies on production.

Net Value added at factor cost

is equal to Gross Value Added at factor cost minus depreciation.

Gross Domestic Product at market prices

is equal to Gross Value Added at factor cost plus taxes on production less subsidies on production. It represents total expenditure on the output of goods and services produced in the country and valued at the prices at which the expenditure is incurred.

Gross National Product at factor cost

is equal to Gross Value Added at factor cost plus net factor income from the rest of the world and represents the total of all payments for productive services accruing to the permanent residents of the country. Some income accrues to Irish residents as a result of economic activity abroad or property held abroad while some income arising in the state is paid to non-residents.

Gross National Income at market prices

is equal to Gross National Product at market prices plus EU subsidies less EU taxes.  This is more commonly described as being equal to Gross Domestic Product plus net primary incomes from abroad.
