Concepts

European sector accounts present a complete and consistent set of data for all resident sectors. They provide comprehensive information not only on the economic activities of households, non-financial corporations, financial corporations and the government, but also on the interactions between these sectors and the rest of the world.

In addition, the euro area accounts link financial and non-financial statistics, thereby allowing for an integrated analysis of non-financial economic activities (such as gross fixed capital formation) and financial transactions (such as the issuance of debt). The euro area accounts also contain consistent financial balance sheets, with the result that quarterly changes in the financial wealth of each euro area sector can now be integrated into business cycle analysis.
