LatAm: services as share of GDP 2010-2018, by region

Since 2010, the services industry in small Caribbean states has contributed with a relatively higher share of the value added to the gross domestic product (GDP) than the regional average. In 2017, the latest year with available data, 61.4 percent of the total value added to GDP in small Caribbean states was generated by the services industry. This share has decreased compared to 2016, when it stood at almost 64 percent.

The services industry comprises wholesale and retail trade (including hotels and restaurants), transportation, governmental, financial, professional, and personal services such as education, health care, and real estate. The added value is calculated by subtracting the cost of intermediate goods and services from the sector's total GDP.
