National Institute of Statistics, Italy

The Italian National Institute of Statistics is a public research organisation. It has been present in Italy since 1926, and is the main producer of official statistics in the service of citizens and policy-makers. It operates in complete independence and continuous interaction with the academic and scientific communities. Since 1989 Istat has been performing the role of directing, coordinating, and providing technical assistance and training within the National Statistical System (Sistan). The System was established under Legislative Decree 322/89 in order to rationalise the production and publication of information and to optimise resources allocated to official statistics. Sistanis made up of Istat, central and branch statistical departments of Public Administrations, of local and regional bodies, Chambers of Commerce, other public bodies and administrations providing statistical information.

      Data source(s) used: The 3rd October 2014 Istat released the new annual series of national accounts based on the new European System of Accounts (ESA 2010). At the same time, as in other European countries, the time series of national accounts have been subjected to an extraordinary revision, exploiting advances in methods and sources (e.g. the new balance of payments estimates issued by the Bank of Italy based on the new manual BPM6).Production and value added for agriculture, fishery and silviculture The agricultural sector uses as calculating method, unlike most other economic sectors, the aggregation estimates on quantities and prices. In this context, agricultural accounts require (at both central framework level and satellite account level), statistical information available at a very disaggregated level. Such information is integrated, during the year with data on sowings, forecasts on production and on harvested production in progress and with the data from the REA (the sample survey on the economic outcomes of agricultural holdings).
