  • Introduction
    This is the fifty-fifth issue of National Accounts Statistics: Main Aggregates and Detailed Tables showing detailed national accounts estimates for 208 countries and areas for the reporting years 2002 to 2013. Like the previous issues, it has been prepared by the Statistics Division of the Department for Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations Secretariat with the generous co-operation of national statistical offices. It is issued in accordance with the recommendation of the Statistical Commission at its first session that the Statistics Division of the United Nations should publish regularly the most recent available data on national accounts for as many countries and areas as possible.
  • System of national accounts
    The origins of the System of National Accounts (SNA) trace back to the 1947 Report of the Sub-Committee on National Income Statistics of the League of Nations Committee of Statistical Experts under the leadership of Richard Stone. At its first session in 1947, the United Nations Statistical Commission emphasized the need for international statistical standards for the compilation and updating of comparable statistics in support of a large array of policy needs. Specifically, the Commission recommended that the United Nations Statistical Office, in consultation with the interested specialized agencies, should work on guidelines for national accounts statistics (national income and expenditure), taking into consideration best practises and international comparability. In view of the emphasis on international statistical standards, the first national accounts standard was produced and published in 1953. The SNA was subsequently revised and updated in 1960, 1964, 1968 and 1993. In 2003 the Statistical Commission called for an update of the 1993 SNA. The System of National Accounts 2008, (in short the 2008 SNA) was finalised in 2009. This chapter describes the concepts and definitions of the SNA as recommended by the 1993 SNA.
