Real output is constructed from the gross domestic product (GDP) excluding the following outputs: general government, nonprofit institutions, paid employees of private households, and the rental value of owner-occupied dwellings. The farm sector, which is subject to unique external forces, also is excluded to yield the nonfarm business sector, the principal focus of many productivity studies.
