Distributional National Accounts based on the HFCS

Project Details

Financing body

Oesterreichische Nationalbank (Jubiläumsfonds)


This project seeks to implement Distributional National Accounts (DINA) using the micro data of the Household Finance and Consumption Survey (HFCS). We use this vividly discussed extension of traditional national accounts to estimate marginal consumption and investment rates of households and firms respectively. Based on this framework we propose the use of Stock Flow Consistent modeling to analyze the effects of tax policy changes on investment and consumption separately for capital and labour income.
