National Accounts

Since the year 2007, the Department of Census and Statistics has been authorized to compile National Accounts of Sri Lanka.

In this history, the base year was revised several times to 1958, 1963, 1975, 1990 and 2002. Under the previous National Accounts series, the combination of recommendations of "1968 System of National Accounts" and "1993 System of National Accounts" were used. National Accounts Statistics compiled by the DCS includes production, expenditure, cost components, distribution of national income, external transactions, supply and disposition, consolidated accounts on production and expenditure, capital finance and rest of the world statistics and etc. Those statistics are released with 75 days time lag. Until the year 2015, National Accounts were estimated using year 2002 as the base year.

TIn 2015, the base year was moved to 2010 with the objectives of enhancing the accuracy of constant price estimates and represent the real economic structure of Sri Lankan economy. In the rebasing process several improvements were made to the Sri Lankan System of National Accounts such as adoption of international classifications and adoption of SNA 2008 compilation methodologies. Accordingly, from the first quarter of 2015, the National Accounts are compiled with the 2010 as the base year. Until the fourth quarter 2015, National Accounts will be continued to compile for 2002 base year series as well.

This page contains the National Accounts statistics for the new series (base year 2010)

Supply and Use Table (SUT), Symmetric Input-Output tables (SIOTs), Excel based tool to analyze the economy and Note on SUT, SIOTs and analysis for the year 2010 has been released.

The supply Table represents how supply is generated by domestic production and imports while the Use table shows how these supply is used as Intermediate consumption, Final consumption, Capital formation, and exports. These two tables clearly match supply and use for wide range of products and industries. This process leads to improve the system by identifying data gaps and limitations. Therefore, the SUT is a solid tool to balance GDP by all three approaches without having any discrepancy.

SUT is transformed in to Symmetric Input and Output Tables (SIOTs) and it can be used for economic analysis. There are two versions of SIOTs as Industry by Industry and Product by Product based on used assumptions in the transformation process and two other versions as Competitive and Non-Competitive based on the way of identifying uses of imported products. Before download you should have a clear idea about the selection.

Economic multipliers was estimated using the Model D; Industry by Industry SIOT and these multipliers can be used to impact analysis of any kind of projects. Excel based impact analysis tool is also uploaded along with the tables for the use of policy makers.

Effective Rate of Protection (ERP) is one another policy tool that can be used to evaluate international trade policies and to determine countries orientation in the trade policies. The excel file of Nominal Rate of Protection (NRP) and Effective Rate of Protection (ERP) rates for 2010 can be downloaded.
