INTEGRATED ECONOMIC ACCOUNTS – BPM

Statistics Directorate    
French Equivalent: Comptes économiques intégrés – SCN

Definition:
Integrated economic accounts, in the form of T- account, provide an overview of structural elements of the System of National Accounts by depicting various facets of economic phenomena (e.g., production, income, consumption, accumulation, and wealth) in three types of accounts: current account, accumulation accounts, and balance sheets.

Context:
Resources, stocks of liabilities, and net worth are shown on the right side of the accounts; uses and stocks of assets are shown on the left side in the tabular presentation. However, in the account for goods and services, the sources of supply (resources) from the economy’s output and imports are shown on the left side, and the distribution of that supply is shown on the right side. For each category of the transaction, the sum of the entries on the right side of the account is equal to the sum of the entries on the left side.
