Industrial Demand-Supply Balance Database

IDSB - 2013 edition at the 4-digit level of ISIC Revision 3
(available on CD-ROM)

The IDSB database contains datasets based on the 4-digit level of ISIC Revision 3. The data are derived from output data reported by NSOs together with UNIDO estimates for ISIC-based international trade data, by utilizing the United Nations Commodity Trade Database (COMTRADE).

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

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

The data pertain to manufacturing and are arranged according to Revision 3 of ISIC at the 4 digit level, which comprises 127 industries. They are presented by country, industry and year.

The current edition of IDSB covers:
Number of countries/areas covered: 93
Reference period: 1990-2010

*Coverage in terms of years, as well as data items, may vary from country to country depending on data availability.

Note: In recent years most countries that report their industrial statistics to UNIDO have made a switchover from International Standard Industrial Classification of All Economic Activities (ISIC) Revision 2 to ISIC Revision 3 and a few of them to ISIC Revision 4. These countries now provide their industrial statistics that are based on or related either to ISIC Revision 3 or to ISIC Revision 4. As of 2010, UNIDO has discontinued the compilation of Industrial Demand-Supply Balance Database (IDSB) at the 4-digit level of ISIC Revision 2.
