The OECD's quarterly national accounts (QNA) dataset presents data collected from all the OECD member countries and some other major economies on the basis of a standardised questionnaire as well as countries' own definitions and classifications. It contains a wide selection of generally seasonally adjusted quarterly series most widely used for economic analysis from 1960 or whenever available:
- GDP expenditure and output approaches (current prices and volume estimates);
- GDP income approach (current prices);
- Gross fixed capital formation (current prices and volume estimates) broken down separately by type of asset or product and by institutional sector;
- Disposable income and Real disposable income components;
- Saving and net lending (current prices);
- Population and Employment (in persons);
- Employment by industry (in persons and hours worked);
- Compensation of employees (current prices);
- Household final consumption expenditure by durability (current prices and volume estimates).
