Within the framework of its Statistical Capacity Building (StatCaB) Programme, SESRIC, in collaboration with the Turkish Statistical Institute (TURKSTAT), will organise a Training Course on “System of National Accounts” on 07-08 November 2024.

The training course will be provided by a competent expert from TURKSTAT for the benefit of the NSOs and other relevant stakeholders in the National Statistical Systems (NSSs) of the OIC Countries.

The main objective of the training course is to enhance the capacities of participants in understanding and applying statistical methodologies and best practices in the area of business demography and statistical business registers.

The training course will cover the following topics, among others:

  • Introduction and Organizational Structure of NA
  • Introduction to National Accounts (basic concepts)
  • Institutional Sectors and Sequence of Accounts
  • Calculation of GDP (Data Sources)
  • Calculation of GDP (Supply-Use Tables)
  • Calculation of GDP (Volume Measures)

The StatCaB Programme was initiated in early 2007 as the flagship capacity development programme of SESRIC. Within the framework of the StatCaB Programme, the Centre collects information from the NSOs of OIC member countries through the biennial StatCaB Questionnaire, assesses their statistical training needs and capacities, matches these needs and capacities, and organises statistical capacity development activities between the beneficiary and provider countries.
