Gross domestic product and gross fixed capital formation in the Republic of Macedonia, by regions, 2008

15.06.2010


According to the preliminary data of the State Statistical Office, the Skopje Region had the biggest share (45.6%) in the gross domestic product of the Republic Macedonia in 2008, while the Northeast Region had the smallest share (5.2%).

A higher gross domestic product per capita compared to the average of the Republic of Macedonia was recorded only in the Skopje Region, with an index of 156.4, and the Pelagonia Region, with an index of 103.9. All other regions had gross domestic product per capita below the average of the Republic of Macedonia. The smallest gross domestic product per capita compared to the average of the country was recorded in the Polog Region, with an index of 47.4.

When interpreting data by regions, the influence of “Commuter flows” on gross domestic product per capita should be taken into account. The daily migration of the labour force in certain regions enables the creation of gross domestic product to a level that could not be achieved by the resident active population on its own. The result is that GDP per capita can be overestimated in these regions and underestimated in regions with commuter outflows. Data don’t present the degree of development by regions from the aspect of households' incomes.

The regions are defined according to the Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics – NTES (Official Gazette of the Republic of Macedonia, No. 158/07)
