The National Wealth Survey Method has been used to estimate capital stocks in Korea by the Korea National Statistical Office in every 10 years. However, this method requires huge amount of time and money. Since the Benchmark Year Method also has similar problems of difficulties to estimate the annual retirement rate and depreciation, the Korea National Statistical Office is now considered to adapt the Perpetual Inventory Method being used by the most OECD countries as an alternative. Hence, in this paper, the concepts of the Perpetual Inventory Method are introduced and its formation plans for the National Wealth Survey are suggested.
