INTER-SECTORAL FINANCIAL FLOWS
The data collected by APRA are combined with data from other sources by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) to compile a set of financial accounts according to the international standard, the System of National Accounts 1993. Diagram 27.1 provides an overview of the flows of capital through the financial system and summarises the end result of applying the current statistical framework. It illustrates the net financial flows between sectors during the year 2008-09. The arrows show the net flow from lenders to borrowers. For example, there was a $48.4 billion (b) net flow from the households sector to financial corporations, an $11.2b net flow from non-financial corporations to financial corporations, and a $32.5b net flow from the financial corporations sector to the general government sector.
