Term
Accounts data
Term extension
Business statistics
Definition
Within the ESSnet Admin Data, this term is used to refer to data in published business accounts only (Balance sheet, Profit and loss account and Notes), since these are made available as a result of administrative regulations, and are therefore classified as administrative data.
Remark
This term is intended for conventional use within this Project. The purpose of this definition is just to ensure readers know what we mean by “accounts data”, rather than to define this term from first principles. Existing definitions were therefore considered out of scope.
