Revision of esa 95 planning and process

Revision of ESA 95Planning and Process

OECD Working Party

on National Accounts

October 2007


Two manuals

TWO MANUALS

  • The System of National Accounts of the United Nations (1993 SNA)

  • The European System of national and regional Accounts (ESA 95) which has specific EU uses (own resources of the EU, structural funds, EDP and convergence)


Esa versus sna 1

ESA VERSUS SNA (1)

  • ESA is broadly consistent with SNA as regards the definitions, accounting rules and classifications

  • ESA nevertheless incorporates certain differences, particularly in its presentation, which is more in line with its use in the EU


Esa versus sna 2

ESA VERSUS SNA (2)

  • ESA is based on a regulation comprising binding rules to ensure comparability at EU level, and a compulsory transmission programme

  • When SNA is flexible and includes several options, ESA generally chooses a particular option for more consistency at EU level


Background of sna update

BACKGROUND OF SNA UPDATE

  • In 2003 the UN Statistical Commission (UNSC ) called for an update of the SNA 1993 to ”bring the accounts in line with the new economic environment, advances in methodological research and needs for users”

  • The Inter Secretariat Working Group on National Accounts (ISWGNA) comprising Eurostat, IMF, OECD, UN and World Bank was mandated to co-ordinate and manage the update project

  • The Advisory Expert Group (AEG) was created in 2003 to make recommendations for updating SNA

  • 44 recommendations have been identified by the ISWGNA with the help of the AEG


Esa update

ESA UPDATE

In their meeting of 27 June 2007, the Directors of National Accounts took important decisions which were confirmed by the CMFB delegates (28-29 June 2007)


Scope of the project 1

SCOPE OF THE PROJECT (1)

  • The revision of ESA 95 will set up, for many years, the National Accounts standards

  • The project will start from the consolidated text, which is the text of (EC) Council Regulation no. 2223/96, later amended by several regulations

  • The revision will cover all the recommendations and clarifications agreed at international level

  • A more integrated system should be developed. Many statistical areas linked to National Accounts will be impacted


Scope of the project 2

SCOPE OF THE PROJECT (2)

The revised ESA will include:

  • A new chapter on government accounts

  • A new chapter on links betweeen business accounts and national accounts

  • More emphasis on infra annual and regional accounts, and on prices and volumes

  • A new chapter presenting a common framework and general principles for different types of satellite accounts


Decisions on important issues

DECISIONS ON IMPORTANT ISSUES

  • Research and development:

    Work in a context of a task force in order to define supplementary compulsory tables

  • Pension schemes:

    Implement the recommendations of the Eurostat/ECB task force in a way which ensures comparability of Member states’ national accounts
