INTRODUCTION

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) presents statistics on Australia's System of National Accounts which are compiled in accordance with international standards. These international standards were updated recently.

This paper focuses on the product Australian System of National Accounts (cat. no. 5204.0) and describes:

  • the main changes to the international standards;
  • the timing for implementing the changes in Australian statistics;
  • the impact on the presentation of statistics in the product; and
  • the structural impact on time series spreadsheets in the product.

This first issue of Australian System of National Accounts (cat. no. 5204.0) that will incorporate these updated standards will be 2008-09, scheduled for release on Tuesday 8 December 2009.
