ALLOCATION OF PRIMARY INCOME ACCOUNT – SNA

Statistics Directorate    
French Equivalent: Compte d’affectation du revenu primaire – SCN

Definition:
The allocation of primary income account focuses on resident institutional units or sectors in their capacity as recipients of primary incomes rather than as producers whose activities generate primary incomes; it lists two kinds of income under “resources”:

(a) primary incomes already recorded in the generation of income account that are receivable by resident institutional units, and

(b) property incomes receivable from the ownership of financial or tangible non-produced assets (mainly land or sub-soil assets).
