The internationally accepted framework underlying the national accounts and which therefore influences standards for most economic statistics (including PPPs) is the System of National Accounts, 1993 (commonly referred to as ‘SNA93’). SNA93, in paragraph 1.38, strongly recommends using PPPs in international comparisons of real production and consumption; paragraphs 16.82 to 16.104 of SNA93 provide a detailed description of PPPs and the methods of calculating them.
