About the National Accounts Section

The National Accounts Section of the United Nations Statistics Division:

Contributes to the international coordinated development and updating of the System of National Accounts (SNA); and undertakes methodological research on issues on the research agenda of the SNA in collaboration with the Intersecretariat Working Group on National Accounts (ISWGNA).

Supports the implementation programme of the SNA by developing and updating supporting normative standards, training material and compilation guidance for the implementation of national accounts and supporting economic statistics and maintaining a knowledge base on economic statistics.

Delivers a statistical capacity building programme for the implementation of the 2008 SNA and supporting statistics through a series of regional and interregional workshops and seminars in collaboration with the regional commissions and regional agencies and through a limited number of individual country technical assistance missions.

Collects and disseminates annual national accounts statistics from countries and provides substantive service to the Committee on Contributions of the Fifth Committee of the United Nations on technical aspects of the elements of scale methodology for assessing the contributions to the United Nations by Member States.

Publishes the outputs of the Section in various publications of UNSD.
