Calculate (Show your work)
a) Net Domestic Income from Factor Cost (2 marks)
1 mark: correct numbers except for one mistake
1 mark: correct answer: = 330 + 65 + 30 + 5 + 45 = 475,000
(Many will miss the 5 for Rent and get 470,000. Give only one mark here)
b) Gross Domestic Product from Net Domestic Income (2 marks)
1 mark: NDP (475) plus one of CCA (70) or Indirect Taxes (60)
1 mark: = 475 + 70 + 60 = 605,000
(Give marks for consistency but take one mark off here before doing so. For example, those who
got 470,000 for a) and have 600,000 here should get 1 mark only here)
c) Gross Domestic Product (2 marks)
1 mark: one missing piece
1 mark: correct answer: 350 + 120 + 130 + 160 – 155) = 605,000
(Give full marks if consistent with mistaken b)
d) Personal Income (2 marks)
1 mark: missing one item
1 marks: 475 – 20 – 30 + 55 = 480,000 (no consistency marks)
(Give full marks if consistent with mistaken a)
e) Gross National Product (1 mark)
1 mark: 605 – 20 = 585,000 (no consistency marks)
(Give full marks if consistent with mistaken b)
f) Government Budget Surplus(+)/Deficit(-) (1 mark)
1 mark: = -80 from 60 + 25 + 20 – 130 - 55

2. Prices Indices (10 marks)
2002
2007
Price/unit
Quantity
Price/unit
Quantity
Apples (per apple)
$0.75
30
$0.50
40
Milk (per litre)
$0.80
35
$1.10
25
The above table gives data for the price/unit ($)and quantity of Apples and Milk consumed
per month on average by the typical Canadian student in 2002 and 2007. Assuming that
2002 is the base year, calculate the following values.
a) Nominal family consumption in 2007 (1 mark)
1 mark: = $47.50 from $0.50*40 + $1.10*25
b) The consumer price index for 2007 to two decimals (3 marks)
1 mark: correct numerator of 100*(0.50*30 + $1.10*35)/($0.75*30 + $0.80*35)
1 mark: correct denominator of 100*(0.50*30 + $1.10*35)/($0.75*30 + $0.80*35)
1 mark: = 105.94 (accept something close if setup is correct)
c) Real consumption in 2007 relative to 2002 according to the consumer price index (to one
decimal) (1 mark)
1 mark: = $44.8 from something like 100*$47.50/105.94
d) Total inflation (%) between 2002 and 2007 relative to 2002 (to two decimals) (1 mark)
1 mark: = 5.94% (or consistent with their answer in b)
e) Real consumption in 2007 according to the GDP deflator measure (to one decimal) (1 mark)
1 mark: = $50 from $0.75*40 + $0.80*25
f) The GDP deflator for 2007 given 2002 as the base year to one decimal (2 marks)
1 mark: correct numerator and denominator = 100*($0.50*40+$1.10*25)/($0.75*40+$0.80*25)
1 mark: correct answer = 95
g) Ignore the previous information. Suppose that the GDP deflator for Canada was 100 in 1997
(base year), 106 in 2001, and 117 in 2008. What was the total amount of inflation (percent)
between 2001 and 2008 to two decimals? (1 mark)
1 mark: = 10.38% from 100% * (117 – 106)/106
