  • Proposes the establishment of two expert groups

    • EG « on micro statistics on household income, consumption and wealth »

    • EG « to measure disparities in a national accounts framework »

  • Both EGs:

    • Will contribute to OECD research on households’ economic resources, living conditions and sustainability

    • Will operate until end-2012

Expert group on micro statistics l.jpg
Expert Group « on micro statistics » (November 08, 2010)

  • GOALS:

    • Define standards for the measurement and collection of micro-statistics on household wealth

    • Propose a framework for integrating micro data on income, consumption and wealth (conceptual framework and practical challenges)


    • Reports with conceptual proposals and practical guidance to improve future household surveys


    • Experts of household micro data

Expert group disparities in na l.jpg
Expert Group « disparities in NA » (November 08, 2010)

  • GOALS:

    • Use micro data to break down the household NA (income, consumption and wealth) by group


    • Report describing existing macro data on household across OECD countries and comparing micro and macro aggregates

    • Report presenting a breakdown of SNA household aggregates for a number of countries in a recent year, based on a common methodology

      (Short term – using current micro and macro data)


    • Mix of experts on household micro and macro data

    • OECD and Eurostat will support and participate in the EG

    • Step 1 (January 2011 – Summer 2011):

      • Take stock of available information on household statistics (availability, methods of compilation)

      • Comparisons of micro and macro sources

      • Proposals for medium/long term improvements in the compilation of NA data through a better use of surveys data (and vice versa)

        • Questionnaire on macro data: availability, compilation, figures

        • Detailed calculations for each country by members of the EG

    • Step 2 (September 2011 – Summer 2012):

      • Breakdown of the household National Accounts data by socio-economic group

      • Proposals for computing disparities indicators consistent with NA aggregates

        • Identifying and defining the scope and coverage of indicators

        • Test the feasibility of producing the identified set of indicators

        • Agree and implement an internationally applicable methodology

        • Consider whether it would be feasible to assess disparities on a regular basis

Expert Group « disparities in NA » (November 08, 2010)

  • A methodological and practical Expert Group to consider micro and macro data

  • Implications:

    • For country members:

      • Micro and Macro experts in the EG or at least inside NSO

      • Access to detailed micro and macro data on households to make calculations and tests

    • For OECD and Eurostat: coordination and calculation

    • Link with the Expert Group on micro statistics

  • Issue (beyond technical challenges): reach agreement across micro and macro experts on the quality and future improvements for each source
