United Nations Industrial Development Organization
The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), is a specialized agency in the United Nations system, headquartered in Vienna, Austria. The Organization's primary objective is the promotion and acceleration of industrial development in developing countries and countries with economies in transition and the promotion of international industrial cooperation. It is also a member of the United Nations Development Group.
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.
Note: Value added and Employnment indicators were extracted from
United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) produces value added estimates of manufacturing activities at two levels – the sector level (often termed industry value added) and the aggregated level, referred as manufacturing value added (MVA).
Manufacturing value added (MVA) of an economy is the total estimate of net-output of all resident manufacturing activity units obtained by adding up outputs and subtracting intermediate inputs. Measurement of MVA requires appropriate demarcation of the type of economic activity and of the territory in which the activity takes place. However, in practice, MVA cannot simply be derived by adding up all industry value added figures because of the complexity associated with survey methods. Industry value added may not cover all activity units engaged in manufacturing due to the incomplete frame used in the survey. On the other hand, activity units are often classified as manufacturing based on their primary activity. This implies that secondary activity can often be of a non-manufacturing nature. Such discrepancies are resolved in the process of compiling national accounts using supply use or input-output tables. Thus, MVA measures an exclusive and exhaustive contribution of manufacturing to GDP.
