New article on European Forest Accounts (EFA) for Germany


Since 2006 the Thünen Institute compiles the national report tables within the accounting framework European Forest Accounts (EFA) on behalf of the German Federal Statistical Office.

The accounting framework is developed by Eurostat, the European Statistical Office. Our tables contribute also to the German Environmental and Economic Accounting and are used as a data source for the German National Accounts. Due to a current change in the EFA table framework, the quality of the data bases and accounting methods are discussed in the article.
