The Handbook represents an update of the Handbook of National Accounting: Handbook of Input-Output Table Compilation and Analysis (United Nations, 1999) to incorporate the changes in the international standards like the 2008 SNA and the BPM 6, extend the scope of the previous handbook, provide practical guidance for countries, and provide greater links and integration of the I-O family of products including greater focus on the Environmental Accounts/Physical Tables.
