WORLD KLEMS Data


On this page various sources of KLEMS-type databases and projects can be found. We distinguish three types of data:




Analytical Datasets


In this section analytical KLEMS-type data sets are hosted for a broad set of countries around the world. Data on output, inputs and productivity is available at the industry-level. The data in these databases is structured and built up in the same way as the data in the EU KLEMS database to increase comparability across a larger set of countries. This harmonisation process includes input definitions, price concepts, aggregation procedures and comparable measures of inputs and productivity. Each dataset has been prepared by a dedicated research group of the WORLD KLEMS consortium. More information on the consortium partner and the construction of each dataset can be found in the source descriptions or on the website of the respective partner.

Regional Networks and Projects


This section lists the research projects and institutes currently involved in constructing analytical KLEMS-type databases for the purpose of productivity research, in different countries and regions of the world. These projects are at various stages of completion. Data, insofar available, is hosted on the websites of the respective project or institute.


EU KLEMS
EU KLEMS Releases in the ISIC Revision 3 industry classification
The EU KLEMS database offers several releases in the the ISIC Rev. 3 industry classification for 27 European countries, as well as a number non-European countries such as Australia, Canada, Japan, Korea and the United States. These releases differ in their period and variable coverage. Aggregates of geographical regions are available as well. The March 2008 release presents the broadest available set of variables, including Gross Output growth decompositions, for the period 1970-2005. The latest available release in the ISIC Rev. 3 classification is the November 2009 release, updated in March 2011 (09ii). This release presents data for the period 1970-2007 and includes data for a list of 72 industries.
Rolling Updates in the ISIC Revision 4 industry classification
The 2012 EU KLEMS release follows up from the previous release in 2009 which showed detailed growth accounts up to 2007. This new release is similar in concepts and methodologies to calculate the various growth and productivity variables as its predecessors, but it also has a number of new features; such as the implementation of a new industry classification (ISIC Rev. 4), and harmonization with the industry data in the OECD STructural Analysis Database. Updates are done on a rolling, country by country basis, dependent on data availabillity and resource constraints.

These institutes have published their own official estimates of Multi Factor Productivity (MFP) as well as related variables, as part of their National Accounts. Construction methods may deviate fromt the standard methodology employed in the published WORLD KLEMS data.
