1993 SNA Update Information - Concept of jobs and concept of persons

Clarification description
Chapter 17 of SNA 93 seems to reject the concept of persons from the national accounts. This is in contradiction with the practice of many countries, which publish and transmit data in terms of persons in the framework of national accounts. The objective of this clarification would be to be less restrictive than the current SNA on the concept of persons. ESA’s approach, which presents both concepts, would inspire this clarification.
