The national financial accounts on pages S-44 to S-53 of this issue of the Quarterly Bulletin present the flow-of-funds accounts for 2002. The national financial account, as part of an integrated system of economic accounts, provides a summary data set on total economic activity for the period under review and presents a means, among other things, to:- identify surplus and deficit economic sectors;- analyse the linkages between borrowers and lenders of funds;- analyse the linkages between financial transactions and real economic activity; and- guide authorities and market participants in monitoring monetary and other macroeconomic developments.
