Glossary of the 1993 SNA - Definition of Term

TermAggregates of the SNA
DefinitionThe aggregates of the SNA - for example, value added, income, consumption and saving - are composite values which measure the result of the activity of the entire economy considered from a particular point of view; some aggregates may be obtained directly as totals of particular transactions (e.g. final consumption, gross fixed capital formation and social contributions) while others may result from summing up balancing items for the institutional sectors (e.g. value added, balance of primary incomes, disposable income and saving).
It is acknowledged that this glossary uses descriptions of the OECD glossary of statistical terms, the Glossary of the System of National Accounts 1993 and the UN classifications registry.
