The euro area accounts provide a comprehensive picture of how economic value is generated and distributed in the euro area economy on the basis of an analytical grouping of economic agents into institutional sectors based on the methodological framework established in the European System of Accounts 2010 (ESA 2010).
The tables presented in the Euro area accounts section show both quarterly integrated euro area accounts and quarterly national financial accounts for the EU countries. The Euro area data sub-section provides comprehensive information on the economic activities of households (including non-profit institutions serving households), non-financial corporations, financial corporations and general government, as well as on the interaction (from a euro area perspective) between these sectors and the rest of the world. It also contains consistent financial and non-financial balance sheets for the euro area, allowing an analysis of how wealth and financing are allocated across different investment opportunities.
The National data sub-section presents the available quarterly national financial accounts data, which serve as the basis for the compilation of euro area aggregates. For some countries, data are not available. The structure of the two sub-sections is virtually identical, except that “who-to-whom” detail is unavailable at the country level.
