Appendix 4: Use of SESCA in the Australian National Accounts


The presentation below illustrates the most detailed information based on the SESCA that the ABS compiles in the following Australian National Accounts (ANA) publications:

  • Australian System of National Accounts cat. no. 5204.0 - annual
  • Australian National Accounts: National Income, Expenditure and Product cat. no. 5206.0 - quarterly
  • Australian National Accounts: State Accounts cat. no. 5220.0 - annual
  • Australian National Accounts: Financial Accounts cat. no. 5232.0 - quarterly

Not all of the above publications will include the degree of sector detail shown below. The extent to which sector detail is provided for the various accounts that make up the ANA will depend both on the relevance of providing sector details and on data availability. In particular, although the table indicates that separate information is to be available for the NPISH sector, no date has been set for the publication of that information which, for the time being, will be included with information for the households sector. As well, separate data are currently not available for financial auxiliaries, which are combined with other financial intermediaries n.e.c.

          Private non-financial corporations
          Public non-financial corporations
