New estimates of Swedish GDP by activity 1665-2010
This study revises previous estimates of Swedish GDP in 1800-2000, and a completely new series is presented for the period 1665-1800. For manufacturing, home industries are added, which has previously been excluded. The series of agriculture and real estate is significantly improved by using previously unutilized sources. This study substantially upgrades Swedish GDP per capita in the early 19th century. The estimated annual fluctuations of GDP may be more reliable than for any country in the 19th century. The series for 1665-1800 is based on the relation between harvest fluctuations and annual changes in the newly calculated GDP-series for 1800-1850.
