Supplementary notes

The source defines the hours worked as: "The total of actual hours worked of an employee or self-employed person. The total of working hours of employees is calculated by adding the hours paid for (the amount of agreed upon hours and paid overtime) to the unpaid overtime less the amount of hours that is paid for but not actually worked. This includes hours of sick leave, maternity leave, strikes etcetera. The hours worked for the self-employed are directly determined."

The source adds: "the official SN calculations use an ex ante interest rate based on the internal reference rate of banks and a risk premium for calculating capital services. The model allows for profits to be made as opposed to the neoclassical model."

The source explains that the market sector is made up of all branches, except for real estate, education, public administration and services and the activities of households as employers and for their own use.
