This report had its origin in a Committee on National Statistics workshop in November 1993, one of a series on improving economic statistics, jointly sponsored by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) and the Bureau of the Census of the U.S. Department of Commerce. The focus of the workshop was on revising the presentation of the government sector in the U.S. economic accounts to bring it more into line with the international System of National Accounts (SNA) and current data collection capability, to enhance information about the public sector, and to make the U.S. accounts more comparable to those of other countries.
