Sector accounts present a complete and consistent set of quarterly data for all resident institutional sectors. They provide comprehensive information not only on the economic activities of households, non-financial corporations, financial corporations and the government, but also on the interactions between these sectors and the rest of the world.
Sector accounts consist of financial and non-financial accounts. For the euro area as a whole the ECB, in close cooperation with Eurostat, compiles the quarterly euro area accounts. They link financial and non-financial statistics, thereby allowing for an integrated analysis of non-financial economic activities (such as gross fixed capital formation) and financial transactions (such as the issuance of debt). The euro area accounts also contain consistent financial balance sheets, as well as major components of non-financial assets.
For euro area as well as for non-euro area EU countries the ECB disseminates a similar set of quarterly financial accounts as for the euro area as a whole, supplemented by a set of key variables from the non-financial accounts.
