image of Guidelines on Integrated Economic Statistics

The motivating source of developing guidance for the operational use of an integrated approach to economic statistics in national statistical programmes has been the benefits of integrated economic statistics for nationally and internationally coordinated economic policy. The methodological and practical guidelines in this publication respond to the recognized need for an integrated approach to increase the coherence and consistency of basic economic statistics for enhancing the quality and analytical value of both basic economic statistics and macroeconomic statistics. The Guidelines build upon international standards manuals by describing principles and detailed practices for further increasing the consistency and coherence of economic data within countries, over time, and across countries.



Implementation of integrated economic statistics

To implement an integrated statistical system, a broad range of actions need to be taken to improve the coherence of the entire system, ranging from the adoption of international standards and classifications to strengthening the institutional arrangements for statistical integration. Each country will have to decide where it should focus its efforts according to its priorities, resources and circumstances.
