An analytical framework describes the conceptual system of definitions and classifications of the related data.

In the context of SDDS "analytical framework" consists of the following components:

1. International / Supranational guidelines: identifies the standardized system of definitions and classifications applied for analytical purposes with regard to the conceptual framework and organization of the related transactions data. (e.g., national accounts: System of National Accounts, U.N. 1993; government operations: A Manual on Government Finance Statistics, IMF, 2001; balance of payments: Balance of Payments Manual, IMF, 1993).

2. Specificities of national practice: describes how concepts, definitions, and classifications for the national data aggregates disseminated deviate from those contained in relevant international or regional standards and/or guidelines.
