From September 2014, these national accounts estimates are compiled according to the ESA 2010 (European System of National and Regional Accounts 2010/ 2008 SNA ('System of National Accounts 2008', Commission of the European Communities-Eurostat, International Monetary Fund, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, United Nations and World Bank, 2009).
