This publication provides a summary of the key methodological issues surrounding indicators and statistics on the space sector and the larger space economy and is meant to be complementary to The Space Economy at a Glance 2011.

 

 

The first part of the handbook examines methodological issues including definitions and industrial classification, principal actors in the space economy and data sources. The second part looks at specific types of indicators including inputs into the space economy such as government budgets for space activities and human resources; intensity indicators showing, for example, outputs of the space manufacturing industry and space-based applilctions and derived services; and indicators measuring socio-economic impacts.
