Discussion Paper 29

National Accounts Developments and Extending the EU KLEMS Database

Reitze Gouma and Marcel Timmer

University of Groningen (RUG), Netherlands



This deliverable describes the outcome of two tasks in Workpackage 1 (Input, Output and Productivity Trends Indicators), namely Task 2 (National Accounts development) and Task 3 (Extending EU KLEMS). We describe a major change in the national accounts of Europe, namely the introduction of a new industrial classification. This is resulting in breaks in long-term time series of output and productivity of countries. We outline how we have dealt with these changes in a new release of the EU KLEMS database in November 2012.
