a) Economic Data

The South African industry indicator time-series database provides a unique view of South Africa's economic structure by industry at the 3-digit ISIC level. The data is compiled by combining a standardised input-output framework, spanning four decades, with a comprehensive set of industry and national account indicators. The result is a systematic and up-to-date set of standardised industry time-series and industry-by-industry analytical input-output tables for South Africa. The emphasis of the database is on the input, output, capital employed and labour utilisation structure of each industry.

Included in the database are a selection of industry-by-industry analytical input-output tables for South Africa’s main trading partners for selected years.

b) Economic Analysis

Quantec’s Economic Analysis service provides an easy to utilise synopsis of economic activity and policy issues in the South African economy. The South African industry forecast is an extension of the macroeconomic key indicator forecast to the industry level. Forecasts and analysis can be used for strategic planning, budgeting, product development, investment, marketing, costing, wage negotiations and other purposes. The forecast service includes all industry forecast data, quarterly indicator tables and quarterly dashboards. The main industry forecast report is available quarterly.

Benefits and highlights

    The structure of each industry is explained by hundreds of variables. Various views or units (nominal, real, price index, etc.) describe each variable.
  • The industry classification follows the 3-digit ISIC scheme
    The industries are classified according to the 28 manufacturing industries (3-digit ISIC) and 17 non-manufacturing industries (2 and 3-digit ISIC).
  • Ideally suited for industry-level economic analysis
    The industry database can serve as an important input into a wide range of economic analyses, including work on productivity, technology diffusion, environmental and economic impact, structural change and several other issues.
  • The industry data and forecast also provides:
    • Forecasted sales in multiple industries
    • Compare, rank, and size industries
