The System of National Accounts (SNA) is the internationally agreed standard set of recommendations on how to compile measures of economic
activity. The SNA describes a coherent, consistent and integrated set of macroeconomic accounts in the context of a set of internationally
agreed concepts, definitions, classifications and accounting rules.
In addition, the SNA provides an overview of economic processes, recording how production is distributed among consumers, businesses, government
and foreign nations. It shows how income originating in production, modified by taxes and transfers, flows to these groups and how they allocate
these flows to consumption, saving and investment. Consequently, the national accounts are one of the building blocks of macroeconomic statistics
forming a basis for economic analysis and policy formulation. The SNA is widely used across countries in the world, and is the standard tool for
comparing economic performance across countries and periods, and across economic sectors in a single period. It was developed jointly by various
international organizations spearheaded by the United Nations Statistical Commission.
