Notes : Figures in this table are the latest data released on 14 August 2020.
 rRevised figures
 In Hong Kong, the first released figures on GDP by expenditure component in respect of a period are called "advance estimates". When more data become available, the figures will be revised. All those figures published subsequently, after the advance figures, are called "revised figures". These "revised figures" are still subject to further regular revision later on when more data are incorporated. This routine revision is in accordance with the international practice to compile and release GDP figures at the earliest possible time by using only partial data. In general, the figures are finalised when finalised data from all regular sources are incorporated.
 '0.0'denotes increase or decrease of less than 0.05%
 N.A.Not applicable
 The rate of change of GDP in real terms for 2020 is forecast to be -6.0% to -8.0%. For more information on the forecast of GDP, please click here.
 Changes over time in the GDP at current prices can be factored into two components, reflecting:
(a) changes in the prices of goods and services produced or purchased ; and
(b) changes in their volumes.
 Changes of chained dollar estimates of GDP reflect changes in the volume of production or consumption of goods and services from one period to another. The effect of changes in prices has been removed.
 In the seasonally adjusted GDP series, since seasonal effects have been removed statistically, figures for consecutive quarters can be compared more meaningfully. When the year-on-year changes for the quarterly figures in the original GDP series and the quarter-to-quarter changes in the seasonally adjusted GDP series are analysed together, the trend of the GDP can be more clearly discerned.
