Table 21 Gross Value Added (GVA) at Current Basic Prices

This table provides gross value added (GVA) at basic prices in current terms for 37 sectors of the economy according to the Nace Rev. 2 classification system. It provides more detail than that of the 10 economic sectors shown in Table 3. Table 21 provides valuations of GVA for the sectors at "basic prices", in line with the valuation used in Tables 2 and 3. "Basic prices" is the valuation used in EU publications and differs from "factor cost" in that overhead taxes (such as rates) are included in the basic prices valuations while overhead subsidies are excluded.

Please note: Table 21 was updated on 22 September 2021 to rectify an error in the total gross value added at current basic prices. Only the total value of gross value added for years 2016-2020 was impacted by this error, all other values in Table 21 remain as published on 15 July 2021.

Table 22 Gross Value Added (GVA) at Constant Basic Prices (chain linked annually and referenced to year 2019)

This table provides gross value added at constant prices (chain linked and referenced to 2019) for 37 sectors of the economy. The same sectors are used as in Table 21 which is at current prices. The table provides a detailed breakdown of real growth in the constituent sectors of the economy. It aligns with Table 4 (the 10 sector breakdown) but provides a greater level of detail. The valuation used in Table 22 (as in Table 21) is "basic prices".

Table 23 provides a detailed breakdown of all components that make up Gross Value Added at current market prices by Nace Rev. 2 A64 Sector. The table also provides a breakdown of sector contributions to gross value added by Nace Rev. 2 A64 Sector.
