This chapter examines the application of the System of National Accounts 1993 (SNA) in Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom. The comparison is done from two perspectives: scope and integration. The findings suggest that all three countries produce a highly integrated set of accounts which greatly facilitates consistent analysis of the economy by their domestic users and across international comparisons. This chapter also identifies the three commonalities among them. These include the use of highly centralized statistical systems, long track record in producing national accounts estimates and the inclusion of balance-of-payments statistics as part of the SNA accounting system.

Keywords:   System of National Accounts 1993, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, statistical systems, national accounts estimates, balance-of-payment statistics
