This report presents the official Quarterly Gross Domestic product (QGDP) estimates for Tanzania Mainland. It is the first set of results for the third quarter of 2010. The compilation of QGDP follows the need of having appropriate policy interventions which can be achieved through reliable and frequent reports on recent economic developments. The current quarterly  DP estimates may be revised on the availability of the revised

data from the field.

In the report, the real growth rates are measured as percentage changes of QGDP for current year as compared to the QGDP for the previous year. For example, the real growth rate for the third quarter of the year 2010 is the percentage change between QGDP of the third quarter of the year 2009 and the corresponding figure
for the year 2010.
