Release Information

This dataset contains information regarding the national accounts expenditure approach in three forms:

  • unadjusted
  • seasonally and calendar day adjusted using X-13-ARIMA (developed by the United States Census Bureau)
  • seasonally and calendar day adjusted using BV4.1 (developed by the Federal Statistical Office of Germany (FSO))

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.
