The first change in our research has been the use of the GFCF matrices by assets and industries established by the INE and first published in 2012, which currently cover the period 2000-2011. The change introduced by the INE in classifying the GFCF by assets, instead of using the classification by products, is of great interest since the GFCF breakdown by types of assets is crucial to our study. Another major development has been the change in the classification by activities by using the NACE-2009 classification, which is applied by the INE to the Spanish National Accounting base year 2008, as a replacement for NACE-1993.
