Source data for expenditures and income are, in general, superior to the valueadded estimates (mainly due to inadequacies in the data on intermediate inputs). Clearly, a better approach would be the joint estimation of the expenditure, income, and production (value-added) estimates on a concurrent basis using a methodology that weights the relative quality of the source data and methods used in each technique. This would produce a common and, presumably, more accurate set of estimates that is balanced on an ongoing basis and consistent over time.

More recently, the proposal has been supported by Hill (1999), Jorgenson (2001), and Moulton (2004). The major challenge in implementing a consistent and integrated production account is the construction of a measure of GDI in constant prices. SNA 1993 and BLS (1993) have provided appropriate measures of the price and quantity of labor services. These can be combined with the price and quantity of capital services introduced by BLS (1983) to generate price and quantity indexes of GDI, as well as multifactor productivity.
