The breakdown by industry describes the productive economic activity in areas such as agriculture, manufacturing, construction, trade, business services and public administration. The purpose of the industry grouping is to be able to analyse the production structures and to make labour productivity analyses.
The breakdown by industry is carried out for those parts of the economy that have production activity, i.e. output, intermediate consumption, value added as well as wages and employment. Also, input-output, investment and capital stock are calculated by industry.
The industries of the National accounts are divided into five different levels: 10a3, 19a2, 36a2, 69 and 117. See an overview of industry groupings here. The annual national accounts are published for the 10a3 grouping in February after the end of the year, the 19a2 grouping in March and June and the 69 grouping in November. Finally, the national accounts are published for the 117 grouping a little less than three years after the end of the year.There is a close correlation between the industrial grouping in the national accounts and the Danish Industrial Classification 2007 (DB07) for levels 10a3, 19a2, 36a2 and 117.
