Quarterly Gdp Data Correction Using Principal Components Analysis. The Case Of The Romanian Economy – Gdp Expenditures Side
AbstractThe paper estimates a medium-term forecasting model used to generate short-term series of the quarterly GDP. The GDP used was computed using the expenditures decomposition method in accordance with the national accounts, and the data were generated by applying the principal components analysis and econometric techniques. The results of the model for the last two quarters of 2002 were compared with the data published by the Romanian National Institute of Statistics.
