Industrial Demand-Supply Balance Database
IDSB - 2013 edition at the 4-digit level of ISIC Revision 3
(available on CD-ROM)
The IDSB database contains datasets based on the 4-digit level of ISIC Revision 3. The data are derived from output data reported by NSOs together with UNIDO estimates for ISIC-based international trade data, by utilizing the United Nations Commodity Trade Database (COMTRADE).
IDSB contains annual time series data (in current US dollars) for eight items:
- Domestic output.
- Total imports (=5 + 6).
- Total exports (=7 + 8).
- Apparent consumption (=1 + 2 - 3).
- Imports from developing and emerging industrial economies.
- Imports from industrialized economies.
- Exports to developing and emerging industrial economies.
- Exports to industrialized economies.
The data pertain to manufacturing and are arranged according to Revision 3 of ISIC at the 4 digit level, which comprises 127 industries. They are presented by country, industry and year.
The current edition of IDSB covers:
Number of countries/areas covered: 93
Reference period: 1990-2010
*Coverage in terms of years, as well as data items, may vary from country to country depending on data availability.
Note: In recent years most countries that report their industrial statistics to UNIDO have made a switchover from International Standard Industrial Classification of All Economic Activities (ISIC) Revision 2 to ISIC Revision 3 and a few of them to ISIC Revision 4. These countries now provide their industrial statistics that are based on or related either to ISIC Revision 3 or to ISIC Revision 4. As of 2010, UNIDO has discontinued the compilation of Industrial Demand-Supply Balance Database (IDSB) at the 4-digit level of ISIC Revision 2.
