National accounts data provide essential information on the economic performance of African countries in terms of growth and structure of output, capital information, consumption and savings. National accounts data are obtained from various national sources and supplemented with data from international sources such as the UN Yearbook of National accounts, estimated data from AfDB and ECA African Centre for Statistics estimates and AUC Database as well. Where necessary, official figures have been adjusted to conform to the System of National Accounts (SNA). Many countries continue to compile their national accounts in accordance with the 1993 SNA, but more and more are adopting the 2008 SNA. A few countries still use concepts and classifications from older SNA guidelines, including valuations at factor cost and outdated industrial classifications, in describing major economic aggregates.
