The statistics include the five major national accounts – the national income, the balance of payments, the flow of funds, the input-output tables and the national balance sheet – along with monetary and financial statistics, price indexes and financial statement analysis.
In this 2018 edition, efforts have been made to further enhance the publication’s usefulness as a yearbook. For instance, visualized statistics on‘Domestic Economic Developments in 2017’and‘The Korean Economy in the World’ have been included, to help readers to identify information on the Korean economy at a glance. The financial statistics by industrial sector also reflect the changes due to the 10th revision of the Korean Standard Industrial Classification.
I sincerely hope that this publication will be used widely for various purposes, such as the establishment of economic policies and the analyses of economic developments. I would like to ask our readers not to hesitate in giving us their candid feedback and advice on the content that requires further improvement.
