Workshop on Distributional National Accounts
When? Friday, June 7, 2019 | 11:30-19:00
Where? Vienna University of Economics and Business, AD.0.122
Distributional National Accounts (DINA) link distributional information on income, consumption and wealth to the macroeconomic System of National Accounts (SNA).
DINA provide harmonized information on the distribution of key macro-economic aggregates within the household sector. This improves macro-economic monitoring and provides the data basis to bring more heterogeneity into macro-economic models.
Already in 1955, one of the SNA’s founding fathers, Simon Kuznets, called for such distributional information. In 2019, there are still no routinely compiled DINA in most countries – but there is progress. This workshop thus brings together macro- and micro-specialists in Austria working on conceptual and empirical topics related to DINA, and aims to stimulate an exchange of ideas.
Topics covered are
Measurement issues on the micro- and macro side and data quality
Specific challenges for income, consumption and wealth
Micro-matching of survey data
Conceptual issues in the macro-micro linking process
