First 2011 ICP national accounts working group (INAG) meeting : minutes of meeting (February 16-17, 2011) (English)

The first meeting of the 2011 international comparison program (ICP) national accounts working group (INAG) was held on February 16-17, 2011, at the World Bank, Washington, District of Columbia (D.C.). The purpose of the INAG is to support the global office in ensuring that gross domestic product (GDP) expenditures compiled by the countries participating in the current round of ICP comply with the system of national accounts (SNA)-93 and are as comparable as possible across the countries. Mindful that the reliability of converting national GDPs into a common currency using purchasing power parities (PPPs) depends on the accuracy and comparability of GDP expenditure values at the different levels of the ICP classification, the INAG agreed on a 5-line strategy to support the countries in the compilation of GDP expenditure statistics in a consistent and comparable manner. The five strategic lines are: identify problematic areas; refer policy issues to the ICP Executive Board; develop a model reporting document for expenditure data and metadata; build capacity; and validate expenditure data for quality, consistency, and comparability.
