Notes : The reference year for the chain volume measures of GDP by economic activity has been revised from 2017 to 2018. Re-referencing affects the levels, but not the rates of change, of the chain volume measures. Apart from re-referencing, the volume estimates for 2019 previously valued at 2017 prices have also been revalued at 2018 prices. This rebasing of the volume measures affects the real growth rates of the annual and quarterly GDP for 2019.

 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.
