From the Handbook, one learns how to read financial statements of corporations, the similarities and differences between concepts in business accounts and economics and the necessary adjustments to be made to business accounts to obtain national accounts for economic analysis. The main target audience for this handbook is staff responsible for the compilation of national accounts and survey specialists.
