Gross Domestic Product. Year 2007


Last 20 February, the Quarterly Spanish National Accounts calculated the real growth of the whole of the Spanish economy for the year 2007 as 3.8 by RAS-2000 reflected that Aragón was the Autonomous Community that registered t%.

The regional distribution for this data produced he highest real growth rate in Gross Domestic Product in 2007: 4.5%, seven tenths above the national average. It was followed by Castilla-La Mancha, with 4.2%, and Galicia and La Rioja, with a growth of 4.0%.

In addition to these, Extremadura, País Vasco, Ceuta, Comunidad de Madrid and Cantabria all recorded growth rates above the national average (3.8%).

On the other hand, Principado de Asturias (3.6%), and Comunitat Valenciana, Cataluña, Melilla and Castilla y León (3.7%) were the last of the ten territories whose GDP grew below the national average in 2007. Nevertheless, they all grew significantly more than the European average, which stood at 2.9% during the reference year.



In analysing the growth engines of the most dynamic Autonomous Communities of 2007, a common factor was found for all of them, that is, the favourable evolution of manufacturing. Thus, both Aragón and Castilla-La Mancha grew 4.4%, and Galicia grew 4.3%, all three above the national average registered at 3.1%.

In addition, in the case of Aragón, worth noting was the intense growth in construction activity (6.9%, three points above the Spanish average), as a fundamental result of the preparatory work for the 2008 International Exposition (“Expo Zaragoza 2008”).

Galicia stood out, as well as for industry, for its dynamism in the services industries (4.5%), especially in those linked to transport and communications, and to a lesser extent, to trade.


GDP per capita. Year 2007


Considering nominal Gross Domestic Product per capita for the Autonomous Communities, it was estimated that the highest figure corresponded to País Vasco, with 30,599 euros per inhabitant, followed by Madrid, with 29,965 euros, Comunidad Foral de Navarra, with 29,483 euros, and Cataluña, with 27,445 euros per inhabitant.

At the other end of the spectrum were Andalucía, with 18,298 euros per inhabitant, and Extremadura, with 16,080 euros.

Worth noting was that the seven Autonomous Communities with a GDP per capita above the national average (23,396 euros) also surpassed the average of the 27 Member States of the European Union (24,700 euros). The following chart presents the Autonomous Communities, organised by GDP value per inhabitant, from highest to lowest:

In relative terms (Spain = 100), GDP per capita for País Vasco was 31% higher than the national average, while Comunidad de Madrid and Comunidad Foral de Navarra exceeded said average by more than 25%. In contrast, Andalucía and Extremadura closed the list with figures 22% and 31%, respectively, below the average.

As may be verified, the functional map reflecting the territorial data on GDP per inhabitant coincided with that of the previous year. Thus, three Communities (Extremadura, Andalucía and Castilla-La Mancha) stood below 80% of the national average, and the highest figures registered were geographically located, with the exception of Madrid and Illes Balears, above the so-called Ebro Axis, in the northeast quadrant of the Iberian Peninsula (País Vasco, Navarra, Cataluña, Aragón and La Rioja).
