About the product

Traditionally policy analysts use statistics in order to monitor developments and make decisions. This handbook emphasizes the role of macro accounting as an instrument rather than a data set. The term 'macro accounts' refers to the feature of macro accounts to reconcile separate statistics into a coherent data set and offers macro accounts as an instrument to policy analysts. The handbook is about the interaction between the scope of macro accounting, the compilation of macro accounts and analysis.
