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 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 allows researchers to make comparisons across countries and provides sufficient detail to highlight high R&D intensive sectors.

STAN is primarily based on member countries' annual national accounts by activity tables and uses data from other sources, such as  results from national business surveys/censuses (maintained by OECD, Eurostat or compiled directly from national sources) to estimate any missing detail. Many of the data points in STAN are estimated and therefore do not represent official member country submissions.

 

  • NEW SNA08, ISIC REV.4 version of STAN (last updated in May 2017)

Tables are currently provided for 25 OECD countries and, for the most part, with data up to 2014 or 2015 (see coverage). Updates by country are added as they become available. The data can be accessed via OECD's online dissemination service OECD.stat 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. 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.

SNA93 ISIC Rev. 4 tables are available for 15 OECD countries, with data up to 2011 for most countries (see coverage). The data can be accessed via OECD's online dissemination service OECD.stat either using the default query tools or via bulk downloads (ready-made Excel or text files). STAN industry list covers all ISIC Rev. 4 activities in National Accounts statistics (SNA93) 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.

 

  • SNA93, ISIC Rev. 3 version of STAN (last updated in May 2011)

This version of STAN, maintained between 2000 and 2011, is based on SNA93 National Accounts statistics and the International Standard Industrial Classification of all economic activities, Rev.3 (ISIC Rev. 3), and covers all activities including services. Tables are provided for 32 OECD countries,  with data up to 2009 for most countries (see coverage). 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.
