This chapter works out the total value added in primary, secondary, and tertiary sectors based largely on the estimates already set out in the book. The result is an estimate of GDP for c. 1595 at 25,058.51 million dāms, with the primary sector accounting for 52.4 per cent, secondary 18.2 per cent, and tertiary 29.4 per cent. The per capita income in terms of wheat works out as 14.69 maunds, compared to 14.51 maunds in 1901–10. The significant feature of GDP in c. 1595 was the large secondary sector (18.18 per cent against 11.20 per cent in 1901–10), which suggests that ‘de-industrialization’ during the nineteenth century was indeed a significant phenomenon.
