Concordance, 1993 SNA to 1998 SISCA
Interpretation of this concordance
The sectors in the 1998 SISCA and the 1993 SNA institutional sector classification are identical. The SNA93 makes a primary distinction between the 'total economy' and the 'rest of the world' that is not made in the 1998 SISCA. However, the SISCA ROW sector is the same as the 'rest of the world' category in the SNA classification. As well, the consolidated total of economic activity in all the SISCA domestic sectors would be the same as the total of economic activity in the SNA93 category for the 'total economy'.
The SNA93 includes subsectors in all of the domestic sectors whereas the 1998 SISCA includes subsectors in only the financial corporations sector. However, most of the SNA93 subsectors can be achieved by using the ABS public/private classification in combination with the 1998 SISCA. The SNA93 non-financial corporations sector, and each of the subsectors in the financial corporations sector, are divided between public corporations, national private corporations and foreign-controlled corporations. The public/private classification can be used to identify public corporations and private corporations (including foreign-controlled corporations) in the SISCA non-financial corporations sector and each of the subsectors in the SISCA financial corporations sector. However, the classification does not distinguish between national and foreign-controlled private corporations.
In the SNA, the general government sector is subdivided into subsectors for central government, state government and local government. These subsectors coincide respectively with the categories of national government, state/territory government and local government in the ABS LOG classification.
The SISCA does not include any of the subsectors of the household sector that are included in the SNA93.
