    Eurostat-OECD Compilation guide on land estimations

    The repercussions of the 2007–2008 financial crisis have acted as an impetus to improve the quality and availability of statistical information. One such initiative addresses the importance of compiling a complete accounting of a nation’s wealth, and especially the wealth of households. This is of particular importance in view of the housing market’s role in the financial crisis in several countries.The most valuable item on the households’ balance sheet is usually housing wealth which is composed of the value of the dwelling and its underlying land. Many countries experience difficulties in valuing land and in particular separating the value of the land from the value of the structure. To assist countries, the Eurostat-OECD compilation guide on land estimation represents the first comprehensive overview of conceptual and practical issues related to the compilation of the balance sheet item land in the national accounts, in total and by institutional sector.The Eurostat-OECD compilation guide on land estimation was prepared by the Task Force on Land and other non-financial assets under the joint leadership of Eurostat and the OECD. Representatives from various European Union (EU) and non-EU OECD countries were represented as well as the European Central Bank.

    Measurement and analysis of income inequality has long been a topic of OECD work and seized renewed attention with the OECD’s Better Life Initiative. Measuring distributions across dimensions above and beyond income (health, education, etc.) are also at the heart of the OECD’s How’s Life? statistical agenda and form a prominent recommendation in the Stiglitz-Sen-Fitoussi report.

    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.
