This database contains four related sets of data:
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).
List of variables covered:
STAN R&D (ANBERD)
This 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.
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 36 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.
STAN Bilateral Trade Database (STAN BTD)
The Bilateral Trade Database for industrial analysis (BTD) is designed to provide analysts with data on trade of goods in OECD countries, broken down by partner country (or geographical area) and by economic activity. BTD is derived from the OECD's International Trade by Commodity Statistics (ITCS) database where (values and quantities of) imports and exports are compiled for OECD countries according to product classifications and by partner country. To compile the current version of BTD, ITCS data are converted from product classifications schemes to an activity classification scheme using a standard conversion key.
The STAN Input-Output Database is designed to provide analysts with information on bilateral exports and imports of goods in OECD countries.
