a. Compare the production structure of Canada with the production structure of the
following countries: In order to do that, calculate the contribution of each GDP
component to total GDP by industry for every country. Discuss briefly the results.
Note: You can use an excel or calc spreadsheet to do the calculations, but you need to include the
final results (a table with the % of each component for each country) in the document you are
going to hand in and to show (or explain) what is the formula you have used to calculate the
contribution of each component.
b. Read the "explanatory texts (metadata)" of the Eurostat data that you have downloaded.
Discuss briefly if the GDP data of Canada provided by Eurostat is directly comparable with
the GDP data of the other 3 countries (also provided by Eurostat). Here is the download link for the data: http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/data/database If you could include the Excel spreadsheet with the formulas, answers and a brief explanation. I can write it down by hand. If you could , that would be greatly appreciated!!
