Notes : The reference year for the chain volume measures of GDP by economic activity has been revised from 2015 to 2016. Re-referencing affects the levels, but not the rates of change, of the chain volume measures. Apart from re-referencing, the volume estimates for 2017 previously valued at 2015 prices have also been revalued at 2016 prices. This rebasing of the volume measures affects the real growth rates of the annual and quarterly GDP for 2017.

 r“Revised figuresˮ.
 In Hong Kong, the first released GDP statistics in respect of a period are called “preliminary figuresˮ. When more data become available, the preliminary figures will be revised. 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. All those figures published subsequently, on revision, are called “revised figuresˮ. In general, the figures are finalised when data from all regular sources are incorporated.
