UNIDO Industrial Statistics Database at the 2-digit level of ISIC Rev. 3 (INDSTAT2)

The UNIDO Industrial Statistics Database at the 2-digit level of ISIC (INDSTAT2) contains time series data on the manufacturing sector for the period 1963 onwards. INDSTAT2 is the largest industrial statistics database of its kind. Unlike others presented by different classification standards for different time periods, INDSTAT2 provides data by a single classification standard for more than 40 years, which makes it particularly valuable for long-term structural analysis. The database contains eight principle indicators of industrial statistics, including the index numbers of industrial production, which show the real growth of the volume of production by 2-digit of ISIC Rev. 3. The data are arranged at the 2-digit level of the International Standard Industrial Classification of All Economic Activities (ISIC) Revision 3 pertaining to the manufacturing sector, which comprises 23 industries. INDSTAT2 covers: 170 country during the reference period: 1963- 2014
 
UNIDO Industrial Statistics Database at the 4-digit level of ISIC Rev. 3 & 4 (INDSTAT4)

The UNIDO Industrial Statistics Database at the 4-digit level of ISIC (INDSTAT4) contains highly disaggregated data on the manufacturing sector for the period 1990 onwards. Comparability of data over time and across the countries has been the main priority of developing and updating this database. INDSTAT4 offers a unique possibility of in-depth analysis of the structural transformation of economies over time. The database contains seven principle indicators of industrial statistics. The data are arranged at the 3- and 4-digit level of the International Standard Industrial Classification of All Economic Activities (ISIC) Revision 3 and 4 pertaining to the manufacturing, which comprises more than 150 manufacturing sectors and sub-sectors.

The database contains following indicators of industrial statistics:

  • Number of establishments.
  • Number of employees.
  • Wages and salaries.
  • Output.
  • Value added.
  • Gross fixed capital formation.
  • Number of female employees.

INDSTAT4 covers: 139 country during the reference period: 1990- 2012
 
UNIDO Industrial Demand-Supply Balance Database at the 4-digit level of ISIC Rev. 3 & 4 (IDSB)

The UNIDO Industrial Demand-Supply Balance Database at the 4-digit level of ISIC (IDSB) contains highly disaggregated data on the manufacturing sector for the period 1990 onwards and includes trade data. The data are derived from output data reported by NSOs, as presented in the INDSTAT4 database, together with UNIDO estimates for ISIC-based international trade data, by utilizing the United Nations Commodity Trade Database (COMTRADE). The database contains data on output and on trade related items, such as imports, export and apparent consumption. The data are arranged at the 4-digit level of the International Standard Industrial Classification of All Economic Activities (ISIC) Revision 3 and 4 pertaining to the manufacturing sector, which comprises 127 manufacturing categories in Revision 3 and 137 categories in Revision 4.

IDSB contains annual time series data (in current US dollars) for eight items:

  • Domestic output.
  • Total imports (=5 + 6).
  • Total exports (=7 + 8).
  • Apparent consumption (=1 + 2 – 3).
  • Imports from developing and emerging industrial economies.
  • Imports from industrialized economies.
  • Exports to developing and emerging industrial economies.
  • Exports to industrialized economies.

IDSB Rev. 3 covers: 121 country/area during the reference period: 1990- 2012. IDSB Rev. 4: 68 country/area during the reference period: 2000- 2012
