Description of table S.1.A - Total Economy - Current Account

The integrated macroeconomic accounts present a series of accounts that relate production, income and saving, and capital formation from the national income and product accounts (NIPA) and financial transactions and asset revaluations from the financial accounts to changes in net worth calculated from the balance sheet (see table S.2.A for more information). These accounts are based on international guidelines and terminology spelled out in the System of National Accounts 2008. For more detail on these accounts, see Charlotte Anne Bond, Teran Martin, Susan Hume McIntosh, and Charles Ian Mead (2007), "Integrated Macroeconomic Accounts for the United States," Bureau of Economic Analysis, Survey of Current Business , February, pp. 14-31, www.bea.gov/scb/pdf/2007/02%20February/0207_macro_accts.pdf.

This table shows the current account for the total domestic economy, which is a summation of individual sector tables shown in the integrated macroeconomic accounts (tables S.3.a through S.8.a). All current account data are from the NIPA.
