GDP is the primary indicator of economic activity and, as defined by the United Nations System of National Accounts 1993 (SNA93) and the European System of Accounts 1995 (ESA95), can be estimated in three ways, which are theoretically equal.

In order to produce a definitive estimate of quarterly or annual GDP, balancing processes are followed.
