Diverging patterns of business start-up rates are emerging across OECD economies five years after the sharp, synchronized falls recorded at the beginning of the financial crisis.
The review of the available data and indicators on GVCs in this paper shows the increasing importance of GVCs in today’s global economy, but at the same time clearly highlights some major shortcomings.
The 2012 edition of OECD Input-Output Database is available. Tables consist of matrices of inter-industrial transaction flows of goods and services (domestically produced and imported) in current prices, for all OECD countries (except Iceland) and 15 non-member countries.

The OECD STAN Bilateral Trade Database by Industry and End-use Category allows insights into patterns of trade in intermediate goods between countries to track global production networks and supply chains and helps address other related policy issues such as trade in value added and tasks.
Imports are often perceived as a threat to employment. However, access to imported intermediate inputs can be essential to stimulate innovation and employment. We investigate based on a unique dataset of Ecuadorian manufacturing firms, their final products and intermediate inputs.
“Timely Indicators of Entrepreneurship” measures quarterly the number of new enterprises across a number of countries where updated information is available. The values are presented as trend-cycle (2006=100), which is the underlying path reflected in data over the longer term, i.e. the combined long-term (trend) and medium-to-long-term (cycle) movements in the original series.
The STI Scoreboard analyses the major trends in knowledge and innovation in today’s global economy. With over 180 indicators it presents a policy-oriented review of science, technology, innovation and industrial performance in OECD and major non-OECD countries.
Using the latest datasets of OECD Input-Output Tables, Bilateral trade statistics in goods and services, and energy statistics, the international transfer effect of CO2 emissions are measured.
