Integrated Macroeconomic Accounts for the United States

These tables present a sequence of accounts that relate production, income and spending, capital formation, financial transactions, and asset revaluations to changes in net worth between balance sheets for the major sectors of the U.S. economy. They are part of an interagency effort to further harmonize the BEA National Income and Product Accounts (NIPAs) and the Federal Reserve Board Financial Accounts of the United States (FAUS).

The structure of these tables is based on the internationally accepted set of guidelines for the compilation of national accounts that are offered in the System of National Accounts 2008 (SNA). The estimates that are currently displayed are based on the data that were available in the NIPAs and FAUS on March 6, 2014.

Cautionary note on the use of the integrated macroeconomic accounts - The tables and estimates that are provided on this page are based on a unique set of accounting standards that are founded on the SNA. Accordingly, some of the estimates in these tables will differ from the official estimates that are published in the NIPAs and FAUS due to conceptual differences. There will also be some statistical differences between the estimates in these tables and those in the related accounts. For further information on the conceptual differences, see the paper referenced below.
