25 Years IWH

IWH Economic Barometer for East Germany

IWH has developed a quarterly output method for determining East Germany's gross domestic product (excluding Berlin). The calculations were based on short-term sectoral indicators of gross value added; they were published halfway through the quarter and included an outlook for the next quarter.

These data were aligned with official annual data on gross domestic product and its value added components in the first quarter after the reference year.
