Volume 2001 Issue 2

Previously published as Indicators of Industrial Activity

Indicators of Industry and Services provides an overall view of short-term economic developments in a number of industrial and services branches for OECD* countries and main economic groupings (European Union, OECD Europe, North America, G7 and OECD-Total). The statistics are classified by category and division of economic activities following the International Standard Industrial Classification (ISIC Revision 3). For industrial sectors, it presents indices of output, turnover, new orders, prices and employment. For the first time, this publication includes series on services which refer to turnover and employment, and cover a few sectors only. They will be completed in future editions. Data are published as indices on a 1995 = 100 base. Various qualitative data from business tendency surveys carried out among industrial entrepreneurs in OECD countries are also included.

ALSO AVAILABLE ON CD-ROM AND ON LINE As a complement to the paper version, the CD-ROM version provides quantitative data (from 1990 onwards) classified by category, division, and group of economic activities following ISIC Revision 3 as well as qualitative results for industrial divisions of ISIC Revision 3. It also includes historical series (1975-1998) relating to quantitative indicators and covering industrial sectors only classified according to ISIC revision 2. The CD-ROM uses Beyond 20/20TM, user-friendly WindowsTM-based software that allows the user to extract data and customise graphs and tables.
