Measuring the Non-Observed Economy - A Handbook

Valid from2002
Previous versions
DescriptionThe conceptual framework for the Handbook is provided by relevant international standards, in particular the System of National Accounts 1993 (1993 SNA). The scope of the Handbook is economic production as defined by the 1993 SNA. The main focus of the Handbook is to provide guidance on how to produce exhaustive estimates of GDP. This means ensuring that as many productive activities as possible are observed, i.e., directly measured in the basic data on production, incomes, and expenditures from which the national accounts are compiled. It also means ensuring that non-observed activities are nevertheless accounted for, i.e., indirectly measured during compilation of the national accounts.
