OECD STAN Structural Analysis

Dataset description and subject overview

The STAN portfolio includes the following datasets each useful at different units of analyses. STAN indicators’ industry list is based upon ISIC revision 3 and covers 65 sectors where detailed information varies across country, indicator, and coverage: STAN fills the gap between Industrial survey data (microdata) and National level aggregate statistics (macrodata). You can use STAN to analyse industrial structure and the evolution of industrial performance (e.g. import penetration, investment per employee, export market shares) within and across countries.

The OECD STAN Industry database provides analysts and researchers with a comprehensive tool for analysing industrial performance at a relatively detailed level of activity. It includes annual measures of output, labour input, investment and international trade which allow users to construct a wide range of indicators to focus on areas such as productivity growth, competitiveness and general structural change. Through the use of a standard industry list, comparisons can be made across countries. The industry list provides sufficient detail to enable users to highlight high-technology sectors and is compatible with those used in related OECD databases. STAN is primarily based on member countries' Annual National Accounts by activity tables and uses data from other sources, such as national business surveys/censuses, to estimate any missing detail. In STAN, since many of the data points are estimated, they do not represent official member countries' submissions. STAN is based on the ISIC Rev. 3 classification and covers all activities (including services). To ensure timeliness, STAN is updated on a "rolling basis" (i.e. new tables are made available as soon as they are ready).
Years Covered: 1970 onward.
Countries Covered: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland Italy, Japan, Korea, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, United States and West Germany.

The STAN Bilateral Trade Database for industrial analysis (BTD) is designed to provide analysts with information on bilateral exports and imports of goods in OECD countries, classified according to 42 economic activities and 61 partner countries and geographical zones. BTD is derived from the OECD's International Trade by Commodity Statistics (ITCS) database where (values and quantities of) imports and exports are grouped according to the country of origin and the country of destination of the goods. The data are converted from product classification schemes to an activity classification scheme (based on ISIC Revision 3) using a standard conversion key. BTD has an industry list based on ISIC Rev.3, compatible with other OECD databases such as STAN database for Industrial Analysis, the Analytical Business Enterprise R-D database (ANBERD) and the OECD Input-Output database. BTD data are presented in thousands of US dollars, at current prices.
Years Covered: 1988 onwards.
Countries Covered: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States.

STAN Indicators database highlights vital trends in industrial structure and performance for all OECD countries and various country groups, providing analysts and researchers with a comprehensive tool for analysis. This detailed data set presents 32 annual indicators addressing five themes: international trade, employment and productivity, industrial composition, business enterprise R&D and investment. It allows users to focus on productivity growth, competitiveness and general structural change, while furnishing sufficient detail to enable users to isolate high-technology sectors and make comparisons across countries. The indicators have been calculated with data from the OECD STAN database for Industrial Analysis and the Analytical Business Enterprise R&D database (ANBERD). They also complement the 2005 version of the Science, Technology and Industry Scoreboard. The industrial breakdown presented for the STAN indicators database is based upon the International Standard Industrial Classification (ISIC) Revision 3.
Years Covered: 1980-2003
Countries Covered: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovak Republic, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom, United States; some country groups (such as EU, G7, NAFTA ...) are also provided.

The ANBERD R&D Expenditure in Industry (ISIC Revision 3) table presents comprehensive and internationally comparable time-series on industrial R&D expenditures in ISIC Revision 3 for 19 OECD countries, as well as a zone total for the EU. Compatible with those used in other OECD databases, the industry list now covers a number of service and technological sectors of interest. OECD estimates adjust for deficiencies and anomalies in the official data.
Years Covered: 1987 onwards
Countries Covered: Australia, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom, United States and European Union.

Periodicity and Time Range

According to the OECD, variable coverage depends upon whether the variable is compiled by National Accounts, the extent of back estimates, and the availability of census/survey data. See country pages for more detailed data coverage and methodology.

The data are presented in the following units: current price data is given in millions or billions of national currency. Index numbers are usually 1995 although some series are moving towards 2000 as the reference year. Employment data is listed in hundreds of thousands. Hours worked is given in thousands or millions.
