Issue 18. The measurement of neutral and real holding gains and losses

Back to Research Agenda

Description of the issue
The SNA recommends the nominal holding gains and losses recorded in the revaluation account should be decomposed into neutral and real holding gains and losses. In paragraph 12.85, the use of a comprehensive price index covering as wide a range of goods, services and assets possible is recommended. Some national accountants have suggested that different price indices should be used for different classes of asset. The full impact of this suggestion requires investigation.
