National Transfer Accounts
National Transfer Accounts are based on an international methodology developed by a group of 200 scientists from 46 countries, headed by Ronald Lee and Andrew Mason. The objective is the creation of a common method of generational accounting, in order to measure public transfers, private transfers and asset based allocations between ages and between generations.
In France, a team of 13 economists is directed by Hippolyte d’Albis, in association with the Paris School of Economics (PSE) and the National Institute of Demographic Studies (Ined). The project is supported by France Stratégie, by the European Research Council, by the AGENTA project and by the Chair Economic and Demographic Transitions.
