    Understanding National Accounts - Second Edition

    This second edition of Understanding National Accounts, that provides a comprehensive explanation of how national accounts are compiled, contains new data and new chapters, and is adapted to the new systems of national accounts, SNA 2008 and ESA 2010, that came into effect in September 2014. It approaches national accounts from a truly global perspective, with special chapters dedicated to international comparisons, globalisation and well-being as well as to the national systems used in major OECD economies, such as the United States.

    Each chapter of the manual uses practical examples to explain key concepts in national accounts in a clear and accessible way. And, each chapter concludes with a synthesis of key points covered in the chapter, followed by resources for further exploring the topic, and by a set of exercises to test your knowledge. It is an ideal guide to national accounts for students and other interested readers.

    How Was Life? - Global Well-being since 1820

    How was life in 1820, and how has it improved since then? What are the long-term trends in global well-being? Views on social progress since the Industrial Revolution are largely based on historical national accounting in the tradition of Kuznets and Maddison. But trends in real GDP per capita may not fully re­flect changes in other dimensions of well-being such as life expectancy, education, personal security or gender inequality. Looking at these indicators usually reveals a more equal world than the picture given by incomes alone, but has this always been the case? The new report How Was Life? aims to fill this gap. It presents the first systematic evidence on long-term trends in global well-being since 1820 for 25 major countries and 8 regions in the world covering more than 80% of the world’s population. It not only shows the data but also discusses the underlying sources and their limitations, pays attention to country averages and inequality, and pinpoints avenues for further research.

    The How Was Life? report is the product of collaboration between the OECD, the OECD Development Centre and the CLIO-INFRA project. It represents the culmination of work by a group of economic historians to systematically chart long-term changes in the dimensions of global well-being and inequality, making use of the most recent research carried out within the discipline. The historical evidence reviewed in the report is organised around 10 different dimensions of well-being that mirror those used by the OECD in its well-being report How’s Life? (www.oecd.org/howslife), and draw on the best sources and expertise currently available for historical perspectives in this field. These dimensions are:per capita GDP, real wages, educational attainment, life expectancy, height, personal security, political institutions, environmental quality, income inequality and gender inequality.

    Panorama des comptes nationaux 2014

    Cette publication présente des données sous forme d'indicateurs et privilégie les comparaisons entre pays. L'objectif est de rendre les comptes nationaux plus accessibles et plus informatifs et dans un même temps de fournir les informations les plus pertinentes concernant les définitions et les problèmes de comparabilité inhérents à chaque indicateur.

    L'éventail des indicateurs a volontairement été établi de façon assez large afin de refléter la richesse des Bases de données de l'OCDE sur les comptes nationaux. Cette large sélection a également pour objet d'inciter les utilisateurs à porter leur attention sur d'autres indicateurs que le célèbre PIB. Certains travaux récents ont joué un rôle déterminant dans le choix des indicateurs. Le rapport de la commission sur la mesure des performances économiques et du progrès social (Commission Stiglitz-Sen-Fitoussi) est un exemple particulièrement marquant.
