Background to the Electronics Industries Data

Data analysed in: Kroonenberg, P. M. (2008). Applied multiway data analysis. Hoboken NJ: Wiley.

The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development publishes comparative statistics of the export size of various sectors of the electronics industry: information science, telecommunication products, radio and television equipment, components and parts, electromedical equipment, and scientific equipment.

Data description

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).

Data arrangement

A three-way data array X = (x(i,j,k)) has the following form

                        |-----|i=1
                   |-----|    |i=2
              |-----|    |    |..
              |     |    |    |..
              |     |    |____|i=I=24    k=K=7
              |     |____|            k=2
              |_____|              k=1

            j=1,.,J=6

      

The actual data file has the following form:


          j=1,.,J=6
            |-----|i=1
            |     |i=2
            |     |..     k= 1
            |     |..
            |_____|i=I=24
            |-----|i=1
            |     |i=2
            |     |..     k= 2
            |     |..
            |_____|i=I=24
            |-----|i=1
            |     |i=2
            |     |..     k=7
            |     |..
            |_____|i=I=24

      

Thus the first mode (i) is nested in the third mode (k) and there are 24 (Countries) times 7 (Years) rows and 6 (Industries) columns.


Data handling

Preprocessing

Profile preprocessing was applied to the data in Kroonenberg's (2008) analysis. For details see Kroonenberg (2008). Applied multiway data analysis. Hoboken NJ: Wiley (Chapters 6 and 12).
