Please see the “ Study onStatistical Measurement of Capital Productivity in Taiwan Area “ , published by the DGBAS, for details of the estimation method. Key points of the method are briefly introduced as follows: (1) Estimation of Gross Fixed Capital Stock: GK (t) = GK (t-1) + I(t) where GK(t) refers to the amount of fixed capital stock in t period(2) Estimation of Net Fixed Capital Stock: (2) Estimation of Net Fixed Capital Stock: NK(t) = NK(t-1) + I(t) – D(t) where NK(t) refers to the amount of net fixed capital stock in t period l(t) refers to the amount of real gross fixed capital formation in t period D(t) refers to real fixed capital depreciation in t period. 2. Amount of Fixed Capital in Actual Utilization:
