The STAN database for industrial analysis provides analysts and researchers with a comprehensive tool for analysing industrial performance at a relatively detailed level of activity across countries. It includes annual measures of output, labour input, investment which allow users to construct a wide range of indicators to focus on areas such as productivity growth, competitiveness and general structural change.

Through the use of a standard industry list, comparisons can be made across countries. The industry list 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 economic activity tables compiled according to the recommendations of System of National Accounts 2008 (SNA 2008). Previous versions of STAN (from 2000) were based on SNA93 statistics. Missing detail is estimated using data from other sources such as results from national industrial surveys/censuses. Time series are extended backwards (to 1970 where possible) using vintage SNA93 or STAN estimates. Many data points in STAN are estimated and are flagged as such; they do not represent official Member countries' submissions.

The current version of STAN is based on the International Standard Industrial Classification of all economic activities, Revision 4 (ISIC Rev. 4). Earlier versions of STAN were based on ISIC Rev.3 and, prior to 2000, ISIC Rev.2 (the latter covering the manufacturing sector only). STAN is updated on a "rolling basis" with new country tables, or updated tables, being made available as soon as they are ready.
