Abstract

Without national accounts statistics, citizens, politicians, entrepreneurs and economists would be blind for the size, composition and development in national economies. This book provides an unique overview of the merits and limitations of the national accounts. Attention is paid to the three centuries old history of the national accounts and the links with economic theory, practical data issues and the many uses and applications of the national accounts.

Keywords: National Accounts, Macro-Economic Statistics, Input-Output, Economic Growth, Guidelines on National Accounting, Measurement In Economics
