The OECD's quarterly national accounts (QNA) dataset presents data collected from all the OECD member countries and some other major economies on the basis of a standardised questionnaire as well as countries' own definitions and classifications. It contains a wide selection of generally seasonally adjusted quarterly series most widely used for economic analysis from 1960 or whenever available: - GDP expenditure and output approaches (current prices and volume estimates); - GDP income approach (current prices); - Gross fixed capital formation (current prices and volume estimates) broken down separately by type of asset or product and by institutional sector; - Disposable income and Real disposable income components; - Saving and net lending (current prices); - Population and Employment (in persons); - Employment by industry (in persons and hours worked); - Compensation of employees (current prices); - Household final consumption expenditure by durability (current prices and volume estimates).
The main purpose of this dataset is to provide relevant, reliable, consistent, comparable and timely quarterly national accounts for OECD member countries, some non-member countries and some area totals for analytical purposes. All the OECD member countries compile their accounts according to the 2008 SNA. The non-member countries which are still producing national accounts according to the 1993 SNA will switch to the new 2008 SNA over the coming months/years. This will allow the improvement of cross-countries comparability.
Historical versions of this dataset since 17 七月 2012 are available.
