Updating the System of National Accounts (SNA)

The System of National Accounts

The SNA represents a stage in the evolution of national accounting. To continue that evolution and to ensure the continuing relevance of the SNA for purposes of economic analysis and policymaking, further and constant research need to be carried out.

Periodic updates are necessary to reflect the real changes taking place within economies, the evolution of financial and fiscal instruments, and the improvements of accounting methodologies.

These updates can be viewed in the Historic updates of SNA webpages.

Updating the 2008 SNA

At its 51st session, the United Nations Statistical Commission requested the Intersecretariat Working Group on National Accounts (ISWGNA) to develop a roadmap for the revision of the 2008 SNA for adoption by the Commission in 2025.

The progress of the updates are available at the following link - Towards the 2025 SNA.
