42063-012: Adopting the Supply and Use Framework Towards 1993 System of National Accounts Compliance in Selected Developing Member Countries

Project Data Sheet (PDS): Details


Description

The proposed project is intended to assist participating countries achieve minimum compliance and scope requirements of the 1993 SNA implementation and therefore, position them to take on additional issues of the 1993 System of National Accounts (SNA) Revision 1. Concurrently, implementing the 1993 SNA will improve Gross Domestic Product measures and indicators to monitor Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) achievements, particularly with reference to levels of poverty. Further, the central framework of the 1993 SNA contains detailed supply and use tables that record how supplies of goods and services originate from domestic industries and imports, and how these are allocated among intermediate or final uses, including exports. They provide a framework for checking the consistency of statistics on flows of goods and services obtained from various data sources, enabling countries to improve their statistical databases. Improved statistical databases lead to a more accurate foundation for informed decision making.

Impact

Increased implementation of international standards in macro economic statistics with particular focus on the system of national accounts.

Project Outcome

Description of Outcome

1.Selected DMCs improve compliance with the 1993 SNA and compilation of the minimum requirement datasets in GDP estimates. 2.Data gaps identified and data systems improved to support the construction of detailed SUTs and recommend actions to fill the data gaps 3.Technical expertise of national accountants in NSOs of participating DMCs strengthened in compiling consistent GDP aggregates based on 1993 SNA 4.Improved indicators for monitoring progress in meeting target 1 of the MDGs and the measurement of economic output

Implementation Progress

Description of Project Outputs

Increased compliance by participating DMCs with the 1993 SNA recommendations Established supply and use framework for data gap assessment for national accounts compilation Identified most appropriate data sources, in addition to surveys, for constructing SUTs Developed a framework to derive sufficiently detailed expenditure weights required for PPP compilations GDP estimates for the production account based on 1993 SNA
