Transport Satellite Accounts (TrSA)

Transport satellite accounts (TrSA) promise a relatively new tool to measure and analyse the transport sector as a whole. Satellite accounts provide an accounting framework linked to the national accounts and which enable attention to be focused on a certain field or aspect of economic and social life.

Recently, a number of countries have started looking at the feasibility of transport satellite accounts to answer some of the key transport policy questions.

There is a need to continue developing better data for improved analysis and as a part of this the International Transport Forum has established an informal group to discuss further development of TrSA around the world. The aim is to provide an opportunity to exchange ideas on TrSA and learn how these have been used for policy purposes.
