This chapter considers aggregate measures of gross domestic product (GDP) obtained from the GDP-by-industry accounts. It identifies some of the causes of discrepancies between estimates based on the GDP-by-industry accounts and estimates based on the national income and product accounts (NIPAs) and provides recommendations for bringing the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis' aggregate real output measures into closer alignment. This chapter also evaluates the feasibility of short-run and long-run options for bringing the aggregate real output measures into closer alignment using newly developed data sets.

Keywords:   gross domestic product, GDP-by-industry accounts, NIPAs, U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, real output measures
