This paper discusses the issues associated with, and factors that influence, the overall quality of national accounts data. This includes how the use of a quality framework can facilitate the assessment of the effectiveness of the national accounts statistical program against a set of defined quality dimensions. The paper provides a broad assessment of the national accounts program against the six quality dimensions that make up the ABS quality framework. The ABS is interested to receive comments and suggestions from users of the national accounts. These can be expressed either through the consultative fora already in place or by contacting national accounts management.
