The model SPARTEN is designed to provide a broad data base on economic sectors. It encompasses statistical information on a high level of detail for 375 different economic activities (NACE Rev. 2) that includes times series on revenues, costs structures, companies, employees etc.
The data base is generated from official statistics provided by the German Federal Statistical Office, the Federal Employment Agency and Federal Ministries. In combination with the macro-econometric model INFORGE (inter-industry forecasting Germany) SPARTEN offers the opportunity to project the time series on revenues, labour and material costs, wages, employment, number of companies etc. for each economic sector. Thus, a variety of analyses and studies for economic activities up to NACE 5-level can be conducted. SPARTEN was first generated in 1996 and is updated on an annual basis since then.
