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. It contains a wide selection of generally seasonally adjusted quarterly series most widely used for economic analysis. 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).

The present publication presents time series which end before the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union on 1 February 2020. The EU aggregate presented here therefore refers to the EU including the UK. In future publications, as soon as the series presented for the EU extend for the first time to periods beyond the UK withdrawal (i.e. for the reference quarter Q1-2020), the “European Union” aggregate will change to reflect the new EU country composition. Interested readers may refer to the Eurostat website for further information on Eurostat’s plans for disseminating EU aggregates and to the Eurostat database for the actual series.

Please note that OECD reference year changed from 2010 to 2015 on Tuesday 3rd of December, 2019.

The main purpose of this dataset is to provide relevant, reliable, consistent, comparable and timely quarterly national accounts for OECD member countries, some non-member countries and some area totals for analytical purposes. All the OECD member countries compile their accounts according to the 2008 SNA, as well as almost all the non-member countries
