SCOPE
  Data presentation - Summary description

The IDCM dataset covers publicly available selected National Accounts data (GDP and main aggregates, population and employment) as published by Eurostat, IMF, OECD and the UN. 


It is a results of data exchange materialized by an initiative of International Data Cooperation (IDC) under the Inter-Agency Group on Economic and Financial Statistics (IAG) chaired by the IMF. The aim is to develop a set of commonly shared principles and working arrangements for data cooperation that could be implemented by the partcipating International Organisations. (link)

  Data presentation - Detailed description

The key concepts captured by the national accounts main aggregates datasets cover the following indicators:

a. Gross domestic product


Main indicators from Output, Expenditure and Income approaches.


Note: GDP income components and other income measures are only available at current prices. In some cases due to the national data availability there might be some gaps or incomplete presentation of the data if comparing more advanced and less advanced economies.

b. Population and employment


While not strictly national accounts aggregates, these variables are widely used in a national accounts context. Employment and its components are important economic indicators in their own right, and they serve in the construction of derived indicators, such as per capita or per persons employed, allowing country comparisons.


Total population of a country, on a given date, consists of all persons, national or foreign, who are permanently settled in the economic territory of the country, even if they are temporarily absent from it. A person who is staying, or intends to stay, on the economic territory of the country for a period of one year or more is regarded as permanently settled there. By definition, the total population excludes foreign students during their study in a country and members of foreign armed forces stationed in a country. The definition of population in national accounts differs from the present, or de facto, population, which consists of persons actually present on the geographic territory of a country at a given date. It also differs from the registered population.


Employment covers all persons engaged in productive activity that falls within the production boundary of the national accounts. Persons in employment are employees or self-employed persons. Persons holding more than one job are classified as employees or self-employed according to their main job.
