Technical Note - System of National Accounts

The use of information and communication technologies, like mobile apps and Internet platforms, have been expanding in a number of activities over the last years and it is changing the way some services are being provided. The so-called "Digital Economy" gained wide visibility among the national statistical offices and supranational organizations like the United Nations - UN and the Organization for the Economic Cooperation and Development - OECD, which have been developing recommendations to deal with digital economy enterprises in statistics and, consequently, in National Accounts1.

In Brazil, the enterprises inserted in the "Digital Economy" have also been growing and gaining even more importance in the economy. Aiming at always keeping the adherence to the international recommendations, we managed to follow up such enterprises, aiming at portraying as precisely as possible the economic transactions that take place in Brazil. The follow-up resulted in the revision of some values related to the year of 2017, especially in the activity of "Storage, support activities for transportation, and mailing". The Production value, Intermediate consumption, Compensations, Gross operating surplus and Employments of this activity were changed, as well as the Consumption of households related to Support services for transportation.
