National Accounts adopted the new ESA 2010 system

The European Union started using the new system of national accounts (ESA 2010) at the end of September 2014. The national accounts data will then be based on the new ESA 2010 methodological handbook. For Finland, the new system was taken into use in the national accounts data published on 11 July 2014.

Along with the revision, the system of national accounts becomes more up-to-date with relation to the present economic environment and answers to new data needs of users. The new ESA 2010 affects the baseline data sources applied in the calculation of productivity indicators, extends the concept of assets to cover research and development expenditure and directs the compilation of statistics on global production modes better than the old system.
