Looking for comprehensive information on the Australian economy?
The Australian System of National Accounts (ASNA), published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, is one of the most comprehensive sources of data on the Australian economy.
The publication, released today presents a variety of information up to and including 2002-03. The ASNA covers topics such as GDP growth in current and chain volume terms; productivity indexes (including estimates of multifactor productivity); income accounts and net saving by sector; investment flows and capital stock by asset type, industry and sector; detail on household and government consumption; financial transactions for each sector and estimates of balance sheets and net worth for each sector.
The ASNA presents an industry view for many economic aggregates, providing some key indicators of changes in economic structure.
Key results contained in the ASNA release for 2002-03 are:
This edition of ASNA also includes new information concerning the analysis of income, saving and wealth. A feature article and two new tables of data show the impact of adding real holding gains to traditional measures of income and saving. In addition, experimental estimates of labour productivity and multifactor productivity based on a quality adjusted hours worked labour input series have been introduced. This represents a further refinement and improvement in the productivity estimates.
These documents will be presented in a new window.
