STAN: OECD Structural Analysis Statistics

Hide / Show Abstract

The Structural Analysis Statistics enable researchers to analyse industrial performance at a relatively detailed level of activity across countries. It includes annual measures of output, labour input, investment and international trade. The industry list, based on ISIC Rev. 3, provides sufficient detail to enable users to highlight high-technology sectors and is compatible with those used in related OECD databases. STAN is primarily based on Member countries' annual national accounts by activity tables and uses data from other sources, such as national industrial surveys and censuses, to estimate any missing detail. Since many of the data points in STAN are estimated, they do not represent official Member country submissions.

Trade in employment - Core indicators You do not have access to this content


Hide / Show Abstract

Growing economic and political integration worldwide has increased the sensitivity of employment in one country or region to changes in demand in other countries or regions. The OECD’s Inter-Country Input-Output (ICIO) database enables researchers to derive experimental indicators that reveal how annual changes in OECD employment can be decomposed to account for changes in final demand for goods and services across different countries and regions. 

The notion of jobs embodied in final demand attempts to capture the average number or share of jobs engaged in producing output that satisfied demand for final goods and services. Final demand figures for both domestic and foreign part include Household consumption, General government final expenditure, Gross fixed capital formation, changes in inventories and acquisition of valuables. The changes in inventories by definition may be negative, therefore jobs embodied in final demand may become negative in some specific sectors
