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.

Preface

The development of the Guidelines on Integrated Economic Statistics was initiated by the Statistical Commission, as it recognized the significance of an integrated approach for increasing the consistency and coherence of economic statistics in order to enhance the quality and analytical value of the information the statistics contain for short-term, annual and benchmark economic statistics and macroeconomic statistics. At its thirtyseventh session in 2006, the Commission recommended the operational use of an integrated approach to economic statistics in national economic statistics programmes, on the basis of the report of the Secretary-General on integrated economic statistics (E/ CN.3/2006/5). Subsequently, at its forty-second session in 2011, the Statistical Commission endorsed the draft guidelines (E/CN.3/2011/37).
