Output consists (only) of those goods and services produced within an establishment that become available for use outside that establishment. This includes output of goods and services produced for own final use (own-account agricultural production, own-account capital formation, etc.). The output of the whole economy is equal to the sum of the outputs of its establishments. Output is measured at basic prices or, if these are not available, at producers' prices. [ref. 8022, see note]
