OECD Electronics Industries Data


OECD publishes comparative statistics of the export size of various sectors of the electronics industry:

  1. information science,

  2. telecommunication products,

  3. radio and television equipment,

  4. components and parts,

  5. electromedical equipment, and

  6. scientific equipment.

The data consist of specialisation indices of electronics industries of 23 European countries for the years 1973–1979. The specialization index is defined as the proportion of the monetary value of an electronic industry compared to the total export value of manufactured goods of a country compared to the similar proportion for the world as a whole (see D'Ambra, 1985, p. 249 and Kroonenberg, 2008, p.282).




A three-way array with dimension 23x6x7. The first dimension refers to 23 countries. The second dimension refers to the six indices of electronics industries. The third dimension refers to the years in the period 1978–1985.


The data set is available from Pieter Kroonenberg's web site at: "three-mode.leidenuniv.nl/data/electronicindustriesinfo.htm"
