Getting started

Previous chapters have introduced the NTA system and given background on the main concepts. Now we turn to the practical matter of how to go about estimating NTA age profiles. This is a very complex and data intensive project, and this chapter outlines the basic steps and gives strategies to organize the work in the most efficient way. We begin with a discussion of the resources necessary for constructing National Transfer Accounts: skilled researchers, an appropriate set of computing tools and a lot of data. Later sections discuss how to organize the data, describe a general strategy for creating each age profile and recommend a sequence to follow in constructing a full set of accounts.
