Languages available:*E, *A, *F, *R, *S
This report takes stock of the development of systematic linkages between social and economic statistics using the system of national accounts and balances in the fields of health, education and housing. Its objectives are threefold: to consider the usefulness in the social fields of relevant internationally recommended concepts and classifications from economic statistics; to illustrate the application in the social fields of currently accepted economic concepts and classifications, with examples including theoretical and applied work on the concept "total consumption of the population"; and to suggest ways of overcoming conceptual and practical problems. It is one of a series of reports on integration and improvement of social, demographic and related statistics and indicators.
