The National Accounts
The National Accounts consist of a set of information based on concepts, definitions, classifications, and statistical/accounting rules whose objective is to provide, for a given time period, a close representation of the economic reality of a given geographic space (country/region). They are the accounting base for the elaboration of the report on the deficits and public debts of the European Union countries, although the application of the National Accounts goes far beyond that of the general government.
