The gross Domestic Product determines how healthy a country’s economy is. It is a representation of the value of all goods and services produced at a certain period. It is measured by the formula GDP=C+I+G+(X-M) where C stands for personal consumption, I for domestic investments, G for government expenditure and (X-M) for net exports. Values for the second quarter/2015 are as follows,

C=12224.4

I=3025.5

G=3179.2

(X-M)=-519.3

GDP=12228.4+3025.5+3179.2+ (-519.3)

GDP=17913.8

In terms of percentages in the data above, consumption represents 68.3% of the GDP, investment 6.9%, Government expenditure 17.7 % and net exports -2.9%.
