The System of National Accounts, 2008 (2008 SNA) is an updated version of the System of National Accounts, 1993 (1993 SNA). The 2008 SNA starts with an introduction and an overview and then presents the accounting rules, the accounts and tables, and their integration.

Input-output and other matrix-based analyses

The purpose of this chapter is to build on the presentation of the supply and use tables in chapter 14 to examine in greater detail the possibilities offered by using a matrix form of presentation of the accounts. As has been noted on a number of occasions, the SNA is intended to offer a degree of flexibility in implementation as long as the inherent accounting rules are observed. The fact that the requirement to balance uses and resources is immediately obvious within a matrix framework makes this a powerful way in which to explore different options while still ensuring the balances are satisfied. One aim of this chapter is to demonstrate the power of a matrix presentation in this way.
