Estimates of GDP are released on a monthly and quarterly basis. Monthly estimates are released alongside other short-term economic indicators. The two quarterly estimates contain data from all three approaches to measuring GDP and are called the First quarterly estimate of GDP and the Quarterly National Accounts. Data sources feeding into the two types of releases are consistent with each other.
Gross domestic product (GDP) fell by 0.1% in March 2022, after no growth in February 2022 (revised down from 0.1% growth).
Services fell by 0.2% on the month and was the main contributor to March’s fall in GDP, reflecting a large decrease (15.1%) in the wholesale and retail trade and repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles industry.
Production also fell on the month by 0.2%; these falls were partially offset by construction, which grew by 1.7%.
