  N. 18, June 2014 - The Non-Observed Economy in the System of National Accounts  (PDF)

This Statistics Brief presents a typology of non-observed economy (NOE) phenomena, discusses two broad classes of methods to estimate the size of the NOE (methods applied in the national accounts compilation versus macro-econometric methods), and presents national accounts based NOE estimates obtained through a survey of OECD countries in 2011-12.
