STAN STructural ANalysis Database

 

Short address for this page: oe.cd/stan

Direct link to STAN data


The STAN database is a comprehensive tool for analysing industrial performance at a relatively detailed level of activity across countries. It includes annual measures of output, value added and its components, labour input, investment and capital stock, from 1970 onwards, which allow users to construct a wide range of indicators and to focus on areas such as productivity growth, competitiveness and general structural change.

STAN uses a standard industry list compatible with those presented in related OECD databases which enables to make international comparisons and provides sufficient detail to highlight sectors according to their R&D intensity or digital intensity.

STAN is primarily based on member countries' annual national accounts by activity tables and any missing detail is estimated using other sources of data, such as national business surveys/censuses, which are maintained by OECD, Eurostat or compiled directly from national sources. Many of the data points in STAN are estimated and flagged to the attention of users ; they do not represent official member country submissions.

STAN latest news

 

  • NEW: SNA08, ISIC REV.4 version of STAN, 2015 reference year 

This new version of the STAN Database incorporates the latest benchmark revisions of 2008 System of National Accounts (SNA08) statistics that many countries (notably in Europe) have recently carried out. As a consequence, the latest updates present volume measures using 2015 as the reference year (previously, 2010). This also reflects the changes in OECD's National Accounts database that took place in December 2019. This new version of STAN also provides more variables, such as investment and capital stock in ICT equipment, sotware and databases, includes further industry breakdowns, in particular ICT manufacturing and services activites are shown separately, and introduces industry groupings based on "digital intensity"; to add to those focusing on R&D intensity and ICT. Country data are added to the OECD's online dissemination service OECD.stat as they become available (see STAN coverage). Users can access the series either using the default query tools or via bulk downloads. The STAN industry list covers all ISIC Rev. 4 activities in National Accounts statistics (SNA08) submitted to OECD and Eurostat (maximum A*64), some additional 2- and 3- digit ISIC Rev. 4 details, as well as specific aggregates for better linking with vintage SNA (ISIC Rev. 3) time series.

 

  • SNA08, ISIC REV.4 version of STAN, 2010 reference year (last update: August 2018)

SNA08 ISIC Rev. 4 tables are available for all OECD countries with series up to 2016-17 (see coverage).

Most OECD countries started publishing National Accounts according to SNA08 recommendations in 2014. For an overview of the main changes from SNA93 to SNA08, see: http://www.oecd.org/std/na/sna-2008-main-changes.htm.

The data can be accessed via OECD's data dissemination service OECD.stat either using the default query tools or via bulk downloads.

Related ISIC Rev. 3 versions of Analytical Business Expenditure on R&D ANBERD and Bilateral Trade Database by Industry and End-use category BTDIxE are also available via the OECD.STAT tool.

Earlier versions of STAN were based on ISIC Rev. 2 and covered the manufacturing sector only.
