Wealth Accounting

The wealth accounting approach provides two related sets of information: comprehensive wealth accounts (a stock measure in total and per capita values), and adjusted net savings (a flow measure). The wealth accounts were updated in 2018, using a new methodology described in The Changing Wealth of Nations 2018. The Adjusted Net Savings database is updated annually.
