Abstract
:
The change in the volume of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is widely used as an important macro-economic indicator of the real growth of the aggregate economic activity of an economy.

The Census and Statistics Department released for the first time the chain volume measures of GDP to replace the previous constant price series on 18 October 2007.

This article introduces the concepts and compilation method of the chain volume measures of GDP and highlights the revision to the historical estimates of the real growth rate of GDP and its components.
