ESA95 quarterly non-financial accounts (discontinued) 

  Data presentation - Detailed description

The national sector accounts provide a comprehensive and comparable overview of the national economy as a whole. They record all “transactions” between economic agents grouped by “sector”. The system forms a sequence of interlinked accounts. The institutional sectors bring together economic agents with broadly similar behaviour: non-financial corporations (code S.11), financial corporations (S.12), general government (S.13), households and non-profit institutions serving households (S.14 + S.15). Transactions are classified according to their economic nature (e.g.: payment and receipt of wages or taxes, consumption, assumption of a loan, etc.). For each transaction in the current accounts (and for capital transfers) “resources” and “uses” are recorded. For instance, the resources side of the transaction category “interest” records the amounts of interest receivable by the different sectors of the economy. The uses side shows interest payable. For each type of transaction, total resources of all sectors and the rest of the world equal total uses. For the transactions in the capital accounts (other than capital transfers) and the financial accounts, the distinction is between “changes in liabilities” and “changes in assets”. Transactions are grouped into a sequence of accounts covering a specific aspect of the economic process, ranging from production, generation and (re)distribution of income through consumption and investment to borrowing and lending. Each account leads to a balancing item, which is calculated as total resources minus total uses.Financial transactions are transactions in financial assets and liabilities between institutional units, and between them and the rest of the world. Considering the definition of a transaction, a financial transaction is an interaction between institutional units, or between an institutional unit and the rest of the world, by mutual agreement, involving a simultaneous creation or liquidation of a financial asset and the counterpart liability, or a change in ownership of a financial asset, or an assumption of a liability.
