=E2=80=A2 UNIDO in collaboration with OECD compiles and disseminates wor= ldwide key industrial statistics at the 3- and 4-digit levels of ISIC (Revi= sion 2 and 3). As per UN mandate UNIDO collects data directly from NSOs for= non-OECD member countries while OECD collects data from its member countri= es and provides them to UNIDO to complete the global coverage of the UNIDO = industrial statistics database system.=20
=E2=80=A2 Data received from NSOs are screened, adjusted and supplemente= d with UNIDO estimates as before, then will be stored in the UNIDO Industri= al Statistics (INDSTAT) Database system in accordance with the individual r= eporting systems. INDSTAT database in rev 2 is expected to be phased out du= e the sharply declining number of reporting countries.=20
=E2=80=A2 UNIDO continues to maintain the ISIC (Rev.3) version of its In= dustrial Demand-Supply Balance (IDSB) Database=20
=E2=80=A2 UNIDO has completed the migration of its statistical database = system from the mainframe to a client/server platform. A new presentation w= izard has been developed in order to improve the data reporting system, esp= ecially to meet the user's demand more efficiently.=20
=E2=80=A2 IN 2009 UNIDO released its first edition of new statistical pr= oduct in CD Rom INDSTAT-2, which contains historic series of data at the 2-= digit level of ISIC Rev.3. This is a unique statistical product for a long-= term structural analysis of industrial sector.=20
=E2=80=A2 In 2009, statistical methods of forecasting index numbers for = recent year estimation of MVA data by ISIC was revised and successfully imp= lemented.=20
ii) Methodological work that can go beyond 2009=20
=E2=80=A2 UNIDO is developing a manual on industrial statistics based on=
revised recommendations of industrial statistics and new list of data item=
s for industrial surveys.
=E2=80=A2 A pilot project for producing dat= a on quarterly trends of manufacturing production has been launched
iii) New activities to be undertaken in the next year 2010=20
=E2=80=A2 Further work will be carried out in implementation of SDMX for= data exchange with OECD and other international organizations=20
=E2=80=A2 Data imputation methods using non-official statistics will be = developed to supplement the official data in the INDSTAT database.
