National accounts by sector
In the annual sector accounts, the economic development of sectors is documented. The total economy is divided into six main sectors: Non-financial corporations, Financial corporations, General government, Households, Non-profit institutions serving households (NPISH) and External Sector.
Where in the annual national accounts focus is on the production and primary distribution of output on wages and operating surplus, the main focus of the sector accounts is on the further redistribution of output through interest, dividends, taxes, pensions and other transfers. The result after redistribution is the disposable income.
Finally, the sector accounts show the changes in and the composition of the fixed assets and the financial assets and liabilities.
The calculation of the sector accounts follows the guidelines of the European National Accounts - System ENS2010, ensuring international comparability. The sector accounts are consistent with the annual national accounts.
Besides the annual sector accounts, quarterly sector accounts are also compiled.
