  • 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
Expert Group « on micro statistics »
  • 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
Expert Group « disparities in NA »
  • 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

Expert Group « disparities in NA »
    • 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 »
  • 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
