Quarterly National Accounts

The OECD's Quarterly National Accounts publication is an important source of comparable national account statistics for the OECD countries. The composition of GDP from the expenditure, production, and income sides is shown as well as the financing and composition of capital formation. The Quarterly National Accounts database contains the full time span of historical data for all time series in the publication together with a large number of unpublished series.


The Quarterly National Accounts database currently contains over 6,500 series covering most individual OECD countries and aggregations including OECD Total, OECD Europe, European Union, Euro area, G7 and NAFTA. Data begin as early as 1955.

The database in dX format matches the layout of the printed publication. In addition, historical sets of accounts are provided for countries that have adopted new accounts and have not extended the time series back as far as they previously had done.


EconData updates the Quarterly National Accounts database quarterly following the OECD's release of the database, usually in February, May, August and November.


The database contains three Topics, one each for comparative tables, zonal and other aggregates, and country tables.
