DESCRIPTION


The Australian System of National Accounts (ASNA) are designed to provide a systematic summary of national economic activity. The Australian system of national accounts includes national income, expenditure, product accounts, financial accounts, the national balance sheet, input-output tables and satellite accounts. At their summary level, the national accounts reflect key economic flows - production, the distribution of incomes across sectors, consumption, saving and investment. At their more detailed level, they are designed to present a statistical picture of the structure of the economy and the detailed processes that make up domestic production and its distribution.

Scope

The National Accounts refer to the overall Australian economy.
The smallest region used in the National Accounts is state/territory. Estimates for each state/territory can be found in Australian National Accounts: State Accounts (ABS cat. no. 5220.0). National Accounts estimates of economic activity are not available for any other geographical region.
