Gross Output by Industry

Real gross output—principally a measure of an industry's sales or receipts, which includes sales to final users in the economy (GDP) and sales to other industries (intermediate inputs)—increased 6.7 percent in the fourth quarter. Private goods-producing industries increased 7.2 percent, private services-producing industries increased 7.8 percent, and government was unchanged (table 16). Overall, 17 of 22 industry groups contributed to the increase in real gross output, led by durable goods manufacturing; professional, scientific, and technical services; and health care and social assistance. Industries with notable decreases in gross output included educational services, utilities, and accommodation and food services.

What is Gross Output by Industry?

Principally, a measure of an industry's sales or receipts. These statistics capture an industry's sales to consumers and other final users (found in GDP), as well as sales to other industries (intermediate inputs not counted in GDP). They reflect the full value of the supply chain by including the business-to-business spending necessary to produce goods and services and deliver them to final consumers.
