Gross Value Added (GVA) = calculated as the difference between the values of the output (environmental goods and services produced) and the intermediate consumption (goods and services used up in the process of producing the output).
Employment is measured in full-time equivalent units as specified by the EU regulation. This is based on converting part-time employees’ hours into a full-time employees’ equivalent and provides a better indication of total labour input than a simple headcount.
