* indicates monthly or quarterly data series
The table shows the total value of physical capital formation, i.e. the purchase of plant, machinery, and equipment as well as land improvements and the construction of roads, railways, schools, offices, hospitals, private residential dwellings, and commercial and industrial buildings. The data are reported on a quarterly basis.

The first column of numbers shows the latest numbers made available by the national authorities. The next two columns show the percent change from the previous quarter and the percent change from the same quarter last year. Note that the investment data are in nominal terms so that changes over time represent changes in amounts as well as prices.

Looking across countries, investment is about 20 percent of GDP and its fluctuations are a major contributor to the business cycle. It is typically investment that sharply declines during recessions and leads during economic expansions. It responds to economic growth as firms try to position themselves in an expanding economy and, also, leads economic growth as investment enhances the productive capacity of the economy.

Definition: Gross fixed capital formation including land improvements; plant, machinery, and equipment purchases; and the construction of roads, railways, and the like, including schools, offices, hospitals, private residential dwellings, and commercial and industrial buildings.
