Real GDP (sa)

How is this data produced?

Gross domestic product (GDP) is the total value of goods and services produced within that year, after deducting the cost of goods and services used in production, but before deducting the consumption of fixed capital. In Malaysia, GDP is estimated in compliance with the System of National Accounts (2008).

The values in this dataset are measured at constant 2015 prices, i.e. with price effects removed relative to a base year (2015 = 100). Seasonal adjustment was conducted using X-12-ARIMA, augmented with the Seasonal Adjustment for Malaysia (SEAM) procedure to account for moving holiday effects specific to Malaysia's unique multicultural national calendar. For a full description of the methodology, please refer to the Technical Notes.

What caveats I should bear in mind when using this data?

Values for 2022, 2023 and 2024 may be revised in future releases.
