This working paper presents an updated GDP and per capita GDP series for Uruguay since 1870 and up to 2015, from the point of view of sectoral output. The new series are not mainly the result of new research, but the result of a reconstruction based on different previous research results. The aim of the current update was partly, to compare and choose among the different previous research that so long have not been confronted to each-other; partly, to extend the available series to the present, when a new economic cycle has been completed, with a climax around 2013-2015. The study of these cycles, however, will be a subject of other research. The working paper also presents comparisons between per capita GDP and per capita GDP per population in working age and economically active population, as well as international comparisons of per capita GDP.
