seasonally adjusted data at annual rates

Notes:

The first line is the series itself expressed in millions of dollars, seasonally adjusted at annual rates. The second line is the period to period percentage change.

1. In GDP, government current expenditure is recorded on a net basis, that is , after deduction of sales of goods and services. In the government sector accounts, sales of goods and services to other sectors are shown separately as part of revenue, and current expenditure is recorded on a gross basis, which leaves saving unchanged.
