NON-MARKET SERVICES – OECD

Statistics Directorate    
French Equivalent: Services non marchands - OCDE

Definition:
Non-market services cover those services provided to the community as a whole free of charge, or to individual consumers either free of charge or at a fee which is well below 50 per cent of production costs.

Context:
Under the 1993 System of National Accounts (SNA) market and non-market services are not separately reported if they are involved in the same International Standard Industry Classification (ISIC) activity. However the 1968 SNA recommended that market and non-market services be separately identified.

Non-market services may be produced by Government, by private non-profit institutions serving households and by private households who employ domestic staff.
