Outline of GDP:

GDP is the Gross Domestic Product produced within the country’s borders in a specific period. GDP is calculated on an annual and quarterly basis. Global GDP is the total market value of all the finished goods produced in the country. GDP functions as a scorecard for the economic health of the country. Our government releases GDP for every quarter and the entire year. The data sets will be given in real terms. So, it is useful for the changes in the price of the goods and the size of the economic growth rate of the country.
