This Handbook is one in a series of national accounting handbooks. It was prepared by the United Nations Statistics Division and deals with policy analysis uses of 1993 SNA economic, social and environmental (satellite) accounts. It examines how scope, detail and consistency of benchmark, annual and quarterly macro accounts data can best serve indicator analysis of past and modeling of future trends and how compilation methods may affect such analyses. The handbook is based on papers presented and discussions in a 1998 Statistics Division expert group meeting of national accountants, and specialists on monetary, fiscal and balance of payments issues, environmental, poverty and other social concerns, input-output and other modelers and econometricians.
