It is expressed as a percentage to GDP at current market prices.
 r“Revised figuresˮ.
 In Hong Kong, the first released figures on GDP by economic activity in respect of a period are called “preliminary figuresˮ. When more data become available, the figures will be revised. All those figures published subsequently, after the preliminary figures, are called “revised figuresˮ. 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.
 The above statistics are compiled based on the Hong Kong Standard Industrial Classification (HSIC) Version 2.0. Statistics on HSIC Version 1.1-based can be traced back to 1980 and are available upon request.
