Methodology

United Nations NTA manual

Working closely with NTA members, the United Nations issued the National Transfer Accounts manual: Measuring and analysing the generational economy in 2013." The manual was produced as part of a United Nations Development Account project (ROA 167). It is designed to support capacity-development efforts, assisting researchers from countries all over the world to construct National Transfer Accounts and to interpret and analyze them as a guide to policy. Building on work carried out for more than a decade by members of the NTA global network, the new NTA manual presents the concepts, methods, and estimation procedures for measuring financial flows over the life cycle.
