Abstract

The National Health Account for Germany is a standard reporting tool for the sector’s contribution to economic growth, employment and international trade. Its compilation is based on the supply and use tables of national accounts. Consequently, it refers to a satellite system of the health economy within the overall German economy. It further contains a health input-output table (HIOT) enabling the calculation of multiplier effects. The HIOT is fully consistent with the official input-output table, but it facilitates a more thorough analysis of this heterogeneous inter-sectoral industry, dividing the economy into a number of ‘core’ health sectors, ‘extended’ health sectors, and ‘non-health’ sectors. Concepts and methodology have been developed within projects on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy of Germany over several years. This paper describes underlying approaches for the compilation of the National Health Account with special emphasis on recent developments due to revisions of statistical standards in the con-text of supply and use tables, NACE 2008 and ESA 2010. Consequently, its contribution to existing scientific research is the methodological point of view the paper addresses, which has not been discussed in detail before. The sector’s relevance for export activities is evaluated as an exemplary field of application of the National Health Account by conducting input-output analysis.
