Handbook on National Accounting Backcasting Methodology

The Handbook will provide national statistical offices with appropriate guidelines and advice on backcasting. With the adoption of new accounting and classification standards, there is a high demand for methodological guidance in applying backcasting techniques to maintain coherent time series. As a comprehensive manual, this handbook will touch upon both the technical and the planning and management aspects of a backcasting project. The handbook will discuss in detail the need for backcasted national accounts data, the design and management of a backcasting process, different methodological approaches for backcasting, quality assurance, and communication issues.
