Scottish Input-Output industry / product classification

This document which can also be found on this page, details the industry - product classifications used within the Scottish Supply and Use and Input-Output analytical tables.

The classifications map directly to the UK Standard Industrial Classification of Economic Activities 2007 that were revised in parallel with the European Union’s industrial classification system (NACE Rev. 2). It is completely consistent with NACE Rev.2 down to the 4 digit class level. The UK SIC(2007) and NACE Rev. 2 are in turn completely consistent with the fourth revision of the UN’s International Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activities (ISIC Rev. 4).

European System of Accounts 2010

The European System of National and Regional Accounts 2010 (ESA10, or simply: ESA) is an internationally compatible accounting framework for a systematic and detailed description of a total economy (that is a region, country or group of countries), its components and its relations with other total economies.

Supply and use tables are an integral part of the European System of Accounts (ESA 2010). They play an important role as an integration framework of the national accounts. The ESA 2010 is consistent with the world-wide System of National Accounts (SNA 2008).
