Annex B: The Relationship between SHA and SNA
Abstract:This annex illustrates the relationship between the System of Health Accounts (SHA) and the System of National Accounts (SNA). Readers who are to some extent familiar with either health accounts or national accounts, but not both, will find a description of how health expenditure and financing data reported in the SHA cross‐classified tables relate to the main macroeconomic variables in the SNA. In other words, the point is to develop a common language between the two disciplines, which should be of value both theoretically and practically.
