Classifications are one of the most fundamental tools with respect to the compilation of statistics, and are intended to provide substantiated information and relevant forecasts concerning social and economic matters. INSTAT therefore uses a range of national and international classifications. These are revised in a coordinated effort at both national and international level at regular intervals and are adapted to changing social and economic conditions.

1. Statistical Classification of Economic Activities in the European Community, Rev. 2

NACE Rev. 2 is the classification of economic activities corresponding to ISIC Rev. 4 at European level. Though more disaggregated than ISIC Rev. 4, NACE Rev. 2 is completely in line with it and can thus be regarded as its European version.

The Nomenclature of Economic Activities (NACE Rev.2) provides the framework for collecting and presenting a large statistical range mainly: economic statistics, production, employment, national accounts.
