The Satellite Account on Nonprofit and Related Institutions and Volunteer Work (the Handbook) is an update of the Handbook on Non-Profit Institutions in the System of National Accounts (United Nations, 2003) (available at http://unstats.un.org/unsd/publication/SeriesF/SeriesF_91E.pdf) to reflect the most recent revisions of the underlying international economic accounting standards (notably the 2008 SNA) and classifications (ISIC Rev. 4), and the experiences/country practices in implementing the guidelines on NPI satellite account. The Handbook also extends the scope of the NPI satellite account to include household volunteer activity and, in general, what is now called the Third or Social Economy. It is the result of the collaboration between the United Nations Statistics Division and the Johns Hopkins University Centre for Civil Society Study.
