DOMAR WEIGHTS

Statistics Directorate    
French Equivalent: Pondération de Domar

Definition:
Domar weights are weights used to combine industry- level, gross output-based multi-factor productivity (KLEMS) to higher- level aggregates. Domar weights are special in that they do not normally add to one. This reflects the combined effects of integration and aggregation.
