Higher Growth Figures Confirmed the Upswing
Statistics Denmark’s revised GDP figures published last autumn provide a more complete picture of the Danish economy as being in an upswing since 2012. However, the new figures do not change Danmarks Nationalbank’s assessment of the state of the Danish economy to any significant extent. Danmarks Nationalbank’s forecasts of GDP growth after the 2008-09 downturn was accurate. The GDP revision emphasises that assessments of current developments in the Danish economy cannot be based merely on GDP.
