What is full form of GDP?

GDP full form is Gross Domestic Product.


What is GDP?

GDP: Gross Domestic Product is total market value of final goods and services produced within a country for specific time period (1 financial year).

It is monetary value of all the finished goods and services produced in a country in specific time. It is generally calculated annually and quarterly.

Basically GDP is prime indicator of national Income and health of the countries economy. It represents growth or decline of the countries economy. 

How GDP is calculated?

GDP can be calculated by three different methods:

1)  Production approach
      2)  Income approach
      3)  Expenditure approach

1)  Production approach:

It is more direct approach than other two; it sums up all the outputs.

GDP = Gross Value of output – Value of intermediate consumption


Value of output = Total sales of good & Services + value of changes in Inventory.
Value of intermediate = Total cost of material, suppliers and services used to produce the 
Final goods & services.

2) Income approach

This method sums up the total incomes. Hence, it is also known as GDPI OR GDI method.

GDPI = gross domestic product income and GDI= gross domestic income

GDP =   Compensation of employees
             + gross operating surplus
             + Gross mixed income
             + Taxes – subsidies on Production & Imports.

3) Expenditure approach

 The final method of calculating GDP is sum of final goods & Services except the net export.

GDP =   Consumption + Investments + Government Spending + Net Exports


Consumption = Total private expenditures by households (People).
Investments = Capital Investment in equipment & machineries, excluding exchange of current assets.
Government Spending = The Total value of government expenditures on final goods & Services.
Net Exports = Total Export- Total Import

Hence the formula for GDP is   GDP = C + I + G + (E-I)

Why GDP is important?

GDP indicates the growth of the country, if the GDP is high than it means country is growing and if it is low that means countries growth is declining.

It represents the over all economic health of the country.  Higher GDP means more Investments, job opportunities, consumption and better living standards of the people.

It helps business enterprises and market to take financial decisions. For example if the GDP is high than business enterprises will think of more investments. Same way People will invest more in stock market.

It also helps government to determine policies and road map for development.
