The gross domestic product (GDP) or gross domestic income (GDI) is one of the measures of national income and output for a given country's economy.

Second, it is equal to the sum of the value added at every stage of production (the intermediate stages) by all the industries within a country, plus taxes less subsidies on products, in the period. Third, it is equal to the sum of the income generated by production in the country in the period—that is, compensation of employees, taxes on production and imports less subsidies, and gross operating surplus (or profits) .Japan GDP Analysis
