Household Sector Balance Sheet - A National Accounts' Perspective
The Australian National Accounts (ANA) provide a complete and integrated set of macroeconomic accounts of the Australian economy based on consistent concepts, definitions, classifications and accounting rules. This article summarises the data published for the household sector by the ABS in the financial accounts, and the national accounts more generally, and derives some analytical measures by combining data from the household balance sheet with income and interest measures and counts of households. It seeks to provide summary data and to highlight the structural changes that have occurred in the household sector balance sheet over this time.
