European system of national accounts

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The European System of National Accounts (ESVG; English European System of Accounts , ESA) is intended as a uniform system for national accounts to compare the economies in the European Union . For this purpose, for example, “common statistical standards” are to be created. The ESA was drawn up in 1970 and is based on the corresponding system of the United Nations System of National Accounts (SNA). The new versions date from 1979 and 1995. The currently valid version from 1995 (ESA 1995) came into force with a regulation of the Council of the European Union of June 25, 1996 and is essentially, but not completely, the same as the 1993 SNA. There is a new version from 2008 for the SNA. Accordingly, a new version of the ESA was drawn up, which was adopted in 2011 and should be implemented by the national statistical offices by 2014.

The Federal Statistical Office presented the national accounts with the major revision 1999 to ESA 1995th In September 2014, ESA 1995 was retrospectively replaced by ESA 2010.

The Statistical Office of the European Communities ( Eurostat ) has published a method book on the ESA.
