Concepts
  • AVERAGE POPULATION:  The average population during a calendar year, generally calculated as the arithmetic mean of the population on two consecutive years.
  • ECONOMIC TERRITORY:  Territory that consists on: (a) the geographic territory administered by a government within which persons, goods, services and capital move freely; (b) any free zones, including bonded warehouses and factories under customs control; (c) the national air-space, territorial waters and the continental shelf lying in international waters, over which the country enjoys exclusive rights; (d) territorial enclaves (i.e. geographic territories situated in the rest of the world and used, under international treaties or agreements between States, by general government agencies of the country (embassies, consulates, military bases, scientific bases, etc.); (e) deposits of oil, natural gas, etc., in international waters outside the continental shelf of the country, worked by units resident in the territory as defined in the preceding subparagraphs.
  • GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT:  Final result of the production activity of resident producer units that can be defined according to production approach, expenditure approach and income approach.
  • REFERENCE PERIOD:  The length of time for which data are collected, e.g. a specific day, month or year.
  • VOLUME CHAIN-LINKED DATA:  This chain-linking procedure makes it possible to convert the volume data of annual national accounts, calculated at previous-year prices, into a chain-linked series in a given year, chosen as basis (2000), allowing for the direct calculation of rates of change. This calculation is made on an annual basis, generating chain-linked series, to which the usual methodology of the Portuguese quarterly national accounts is applied, as regards the breakdown of time series, thereby generating quarterly series that are also chain-linked.
