INDSTAT4 - 2013 edition
Industrial Statistics Database
INDSTAT4 - 2013 edition at the 3- and 4-digit level of ISIC Revision 3
(available on CD-ROM)
When the INDSTAT4 database system was created, the first priority was the data requirements of cross-country economic analysis. Much of the work consisted in developing a set of data that were comparable and consistent across countries and over time. The database contains seven principle indicators of industrial statistics:
- Number of establishments.
- Number of employees.
- Wages and salaries.
- Value added.
- Gross fixed capital formation.
- Number of female employees.
The INDSTAT4 database contains time series data from 1990 onwards. Data are available for country, year and ISIC at the 3- and 4-digit levels of ISIC (Revision 3), which comprises 151 manufacturing sectors and sub-sectors. All value data are originally stored in national currency at current prices. The system allows for data conversion from national currency into current US dollars using the average period exchange rates as given in the International Monetary Fund International Financial Statistics (IFS). In support of the statistical data, relevant metadata information is collected from national data suppliers and OECD, which is available to users in a highly flexible form.
The current edition of INDSTAT4 covers:
Number of countries: 135
Reference period: 1990-2010
*Coverage in terms of years, as well as data items, may vary from country to country depending on data availability.
INDSTAT data are compiled in collaboration with OECD: Data for non-OECD countries are collected by UNIDO, while those for OECD member countries are collected and provided to UNIDO by OECD for inclusion in the database. The data are mostly those reported by national statistical authorities in response to UNIDO country questionnaires or UNIDO/OECD joint country questionnaires. They have been supplemented with data published in national statistical publications as well as UNIDO estimates.
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 many of them also 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 production of INDSTAT4-Rev.2, which was a co-product of INDSTAT4-Rev.3 in the past.
