This dataset contains information regarding the national accounts expenditure approach in three forms:
The FSO states that this dataset covers the "private households" sector. However, this data matches the EUROSTAT "households and NPISHs" sector data. It appears that the FSO combines NPISHs with private household data in this dataset. This is a common practice for other sources that report national accounts by institutional sector.
A distinction is made between current revisions and major revisions that take place at larger intervals. In the current revisions, the quarters of up to four preceding years are revised once a year basically in connection with the calculation of the second quarter of a year. A revision of the four preceding quarters may be made for the calculations of the first quarter of a year. As the time calculations are made for the third and fourth quarter of a year, changes may result for the preceding quarters of the same year, but not for the previous year.
The major revisions of the entire time series with annual and quarterly data usually take place every five years and involve changes of concepts and classifications.
