The income based estimate for GDP is calculated by adding together the following things:

• Employee compensation
• Rent
• Interest
• Proprietors’ incomes
• Corporate profits
• Depreciation
• Net foreign factor income

In the table, we can see that employee compensation is (all figures in billions of C\$) 76, rent and proprietors’ incomes are 29, interest income is 17, corporate profits are 38, indirect taxes are 25.  We are not given a figure for net foreign factor income.  We can calculate depreciation by taking gross investment – net investment.  That gives us a figure of 9.

We must now add all of these figures.  76+29+17+38+25+9 = 194.

Therefore, our estimate for GDP using the income approach is C\$194 billion.
