What is the contribution of individual industries to the gross product in your state or territory?

Industry Gross Value Added (IGVA) measures the value of industry production. It is used to measure the contribution of individual industries to the gross product of a state or territory.

Gross State Product (GSP) is a measure of the production of goods and services within a state or territory. This is defined equivalently to Gross Domestic Product (GDP) but is for a state/territory rather than for the nation as a whole.

These estimates are all expressed in Chain Volume terms. Chain Volume estimates provide time series of expenditure and production aggregates that are free of the direct effects of price change.
