What are the national accounts?

This document describes the macro-economic key figures published by Statistics Netherlands. All macro-economic statistics are calculated in a consistent framework: the national accounts. The national accounts provide a quantitative description of the economic process in the Netherlands and the economic relations with the rest of the world.
The national accounts include supply and use tables, and sector accounts. Supply and use tables describe production, consumption and value added by industry and by product group. The sector accounts describe the monetary flows in the Dutch economy between households, corporations, government and the rest of the world. Both systems describe the whole economy and together form a consistent entity. The labour accounts make up the third core system. Apart from these three core systems, the national accounts also publish a number of satellite accounts.
