This Handbook focuses on household sector accounts and possible satellite extensions as described in the 1993 SNA. It compiles contributions of various authors specialized in this field, reflecting a number of country experiences. Its objective is to assist countries in developing their own data sources, household sector accounts, rather than treating this sector as a residual. Volume 1 contains a description of the household sector and its complex relationship to the informal sector, and presents country and case studies and describes the links to other sectors. Volume 2 is devoted to the various types of satellite accounting, including human resources accounting and systems of economic and social accounting matrices. The final chapter focusses more generally on the measurement concerning social issues.
