Other volume changes
Description 1. in the SNA, changes in assets that are not economic transactions and are thus recorded outside the production (supply and use) accounts. Include changes in non-produced natural assets such as discoveries, natural growth, depletion and degradation of natural assets, and natural disasters or war that may affect produced and non-produced assets; 2. in the SEEA, depletion and degradation of natural assets are shifted from other volume changes as cost into the production accounts and as capital consumption into the accumulation/asset accounts. All other changes in asset volume remain as other volume changes in the asset accounts.
