Non-profit institutions satellite account: 2013 measures and analyses the contribution of non-profit institutions to New Zealand’s economy and includes an estimate of the contribution volunteers make to their activities. This release includes information about financial and non-financial information for the year ending March 2013. The statistics in this release update the 2004 account we published in 2007.
Non-profit institutions include: cultural societies, sports clubs, social service institutions, private schools and hospitals, churches, environmental groups, trade unions, political parties and charitable trusts. Overall, the methodology and classifications used for the 2013 statistics are the same as we used for 2004. However, we’ve implemented improvements to source data between 2004 and 2013 when compiling the latest statistics.
The NPISA supplements the existing New Zealand System of National Accounts (NZSNA). Satellite accounts are recognised internationally as a way of rearranging existing information in a country’s SNA, so an area of particular economic or social importance (eg non-profit institutions) can be analysed more closely.
Links are maintained between the satellite account and the central national accounting framework. This is important as it enables us to present new information alongside standard economic measures such as gross domestic product.
