Languages available:E, *A, *C, F, *R, S
This handbook provides guidance for national accountants on the application of international standards on national accounts in "transition economies" and other countries introducing market mechanisms. It reviews how shifts in production from public to private and from non-market to market production affect GDP and component measures of production and final demand, changes in the social benefits system, privatization of enterprises and dwellings and the emerging financial system, and how to adapt data sources to these changes. Conceptual and data links between SNA and the Material Product System (MPS) are presented in the annex.
