Preface

Along with #tagcoding, also the creation of mutually linked wikis with curated knowledge - #tag2wiki - and the authoring and fine-tuned publishing of e-books leveraging #tagcoding - #lean2book - are important digital skills for knowledge localization and translation. More knowledge related to wikis and e-books may be added in later editions of this manual, or in a new manual.

The knowledge localization model presented in the #tagcoding handbook is based on a number of great resources. I am grateful to all those who have contributed to those resources. The Wikidot wikifarm has provided a low-cost, but powerful, platform for experimenting with ideas related to the wikis that have started the path leading to this handbook. In “#tagcoding in the EU” you will discover a wide range of hashtags for structuring the public discourse in the EU. Without Twitter it is fair to say that #tagcoding on the scale envisioned here would not be thinkable. Also Mastodon supports the use of hashtags.

My special thanks to Teody and Jiji Trivilegio, who have created most of the non-English pages of the Actor Atlas, and most of the pages of the local government units, as well as many other pages of the network of wikis that Wikinetix is providing.

Finally, my gratitude to my wife and our daughter for the love and patience.

The author, Malle, 13 December 2022.


Part I - About #tagcoding

Chapter 2 - #tagcoding: why everyone should do it, and how to do it

Chapter 1 - Introduction

The Internet and social media offer enormous new possibilities for curiosity, ingenuity, creativity and resilience. And over the last two decades they have transformed the way we find and share our ideas, information and knowledge.

Search engines, with Google as a pioneer, offer the fastest way to find answers to many questions.

Open online encyclopedias exist in many languages. Wikipedia was launched in 2001 and is available in over 300 languages.

Microblogs like Twitter, launched in 2006, and Mastodon offer incredible sharing possibilities and great retrieval options when hashtags are used intelligently.

Despite all the opportunities offered by the Internet and social media, the localization of knowledge, as described by Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz at the launch of the Global Development Network (2000), proceeds at a slow pace. Information overload in major languages and the insufficient supply of content in most languages and on many topics contribute to slow learning for more sustainable and inclusive development.

What can we do to make better use of the Internet and social media? Wikinetix’s mission is to promote and demonstrate the joint impact of four digital skills:

  • #tagcoding means that one uses standardized hashtags to relate online information to specific topics in order to structure and retrieve it easily;
  • #xy2wiki is about creating a wiki that explains tagcoding hashtags in as many languages as possible;
  • #tag2wiki is about creating, maintaining and coordinating wikis for development communications;
  • #lean2book is about creating and publishing e-books that leverage the #tagcoding and #tag2wiki wikis.

This eBook has built-in links that make navigating the included reference materials as easy as navigating a wiki. At each level of the hierarchy of contents are tables of contents with links forward to lower-level sections and backward to higher levels. This way, it only takes three or four clicks to get to the specific content of a part, or to return to the part from the more specific content. Of course, also term search is supported.

The knowledge localization model #tagcoding - #xy2wiki - #tag2wiki - #lean2book offers several features to accelerate knowledge localization and public debate. While #tagcoding is a digital skill available to everyone, the #xy2wiki, #tag2wiki and #lean2book skills require an extra investment of time and means. One #xy2wiki mission is the creation of a multidimensional thematic wiki in any local language through topic-based translation of a reference wiki. Once such a wiki is in place, it can support the curation of content - tagged for a country or local government unit - in the languages of the country or locality, the discovery of forgotten topics, and the rapid provision through translation of new reference content.

Therefore, a #tagcoding - #xy2wiki - #tag2wiki - #lean2book movement is a general-purpose collaborative countermeasure to information overload, (epistemic) polarization into bubbles that no longer meet and other imperfections of mainstream Internet and social media. The proposed coding hashtags and corresponding provision of wikis will empower users in the discursive, instructive and productive use of both the Internet and social media, enable a willingness to listen, and help overcome the polarizing forces of social media algorithms.

How you exploit #tagcoding and the other digital skills that build on it is up to you to explore and learn. It depends on where you are in your personal development and the responsibilities you have taken on in business or society. This e-book is intended to be a companion for the first episode of your #tagcoding journey.

You can also get guidance and inspiration about your possible uses for tags and wikis by exploring one of these open access online resources

The “coding hashtags” cover topics that interest active and thoughtful people from all possible professions and fields of study, in all countries of the world and in all spoken languages.

By #tagcoding social media and online content, we can make it globally discoverable and retrievable as if it were in one’s personal library.

On the Internet, this library is globally accessible. Using the territorial hashtags #WWlgu we can create relevant local sections in the global online library. The hashtag #2030library and a dedicated part of the Wikinetix website explore this topic in more detail.

If the tagged content is open access, it becomes part of the public part of that #2030library.

As long as there are social media platforms and search engines that support hashtags, you, your favorite authors, your students, your teachers, and your peers can use coding hashtags to share, discover, and retrieve content.


Summary

The second chapter outlines the reasons for #coding tags and explains the digital competencies that are involved if the practice is to be scaled up globally. The desire for global scaling up should be understood as a continuation of the history of knowledge creation and accessibility.

Each of the following five parts presents coding hashtags and class descriptions for a specific thematic dimension.

The IInd part presents the sections, divisions, groups and classes of the International Standard Industrial Classification of All Economic Activities (ISIC revision 4).

Part III presents the coding hashtags for the Classification of the Functions of Government (COFOG) classes and divisions.

The IVth part presents the coding hashtags for the Sustainable Development Goals and Targets.

Part V presents the coding hashtags for the sections, divisions, groups, classes and suclasses of the Central Product Classification.

Part VI presents the hashtags for NUTS 1,2 and 3 areas of the EU (#EUlgu) and the United Kingdom (#GBlgu or #UKlgu).

Annex 1 in Part VII lists all the countries and territories in the world, each with its ISO country code and generic coding hashtags for some of the dimensions covered in this manual: #cofog, #isic and #lgu.

Part VIII lists a few references.


#tagcoding: a new digital skill?

In its electronic version, “#tagcoding in the EU” aims to be a companion in your exploration of new digital skills that have the potential to transform the way American and other citizens use the Internet and social media. What is at stake is a digital transformation that equips you with tools better suited to meet the great challenges of our time.

This e-book provides #tagcoding conventions for a globally shared multidimensional thematic map with over one hundred thousand topics important for development, personal, public and socio-economic. Codes for sustainable development goals, products and services, economic activities, government functions, can be combined with state, country and county codes to form hashtags for specific topics such as fighting poverty in a state or county. In fact, depending on the specific interest of users, or purpose of a campaign, a single hashtag can be created out of billions to support knowledge sharing on a very specific topic, for instance in the US, on #FlintWaterCrisis: #cofog0630 for Water Supply in Flint, Genesee County (#US26049) (Michigan): #cofog0630US26049. But less specific hashtags may also be used as you may discover by looking up #US26049 in Google or Twitter.

In a sense, we propose a coordination of the thematic space, which is similar to the Cartesian coordinate geometry for space and time. In the thematic space, the thematic dimensions are sustainable development goals, economic activities, governance functions, territorial locality and language. Coordination of the thematic space brings superior expressive adequacy and computational efficiency in social exchange, localization of knowledge and articulation of shared and differentiated responsibility.

Searching this e-book can be a first step in a broader engagement with systematized content that already includes tens of thousands of wikipages, or when you feel like sharing a good read, a brilliant idea, or when you need high quality or recent content or speeches about a sustainable development goal or target, a city, a municipality, a sector of industry, or a government function in a country.

In addition to the #tagcoding pivots, other online tools have been defined to support quick and easy discovery of the coding hashtag for a specific topic. See the #tagcoding handbook for more information on these tools and other #tagcoding proposals.


Chapter 2 - #tagcoding: why everyone should do it, and how to do it

There are many reasons to start #tagcoding, but two are selected to illustrate these reasons: it is a means to overcome the polarizing forces of social media, and it is a means to make the world of knowledge small for everyone.

As #tagcoding is not primarily a skill to practice individually, a series of engagement steps are presented. They address the individual skill and the public tools that make the skill “socially” productive in a digital Public Sphere.

This chapter concludes with a #tagcoding code of conduct and a brief note on the current “organic” global adoption of #tagcoding.

Overcoming the polarizing forces of social media

Recently it has been observed that social media algorithms promote the assertion of one’s own opinions and polarize empowered citizens into bubbles that are no longer found. A Belgian Interior Minister stated: “We have invested in empowerment, but we have forgotten the willingness to listen”.

The resulting question is, then, how to make the will to listen possible through the bubbles.

The good news is that #tagcoding was invented for that purpose: searching for a tagcoding hashtag, before sharing a piece of content or opinion, indicates a willingness to listen, across languages, but also across all sorts of bubbles that social media would otherwise reinforce.

By practicing #tagcoding we can overcome the polarizing forces of social media.


Make the world of knowledge small for all

The “small world “ argument in social network theory emphasizes that people are, on average, only a few connections away from the information they seek.

Singh et al. (2000) in their article “The World Is Not Small for Everyone: Inequality in Knowledge Seeking in Organizations “ contrast the “small world” argument with empirical support for the argument that the network structure does not benefit everyone.

For people who have longer search paths to locate knowledge in an organization and on the Internet, the world is big.

Drivers of inequality in access to knowledge include peripheral status mechanisms and homophily, “love of sameness,” the tendency of individuals to associate and bond with similar others.

Search tools for coding hashtags and systematized hashtags covering all topics in a thematic dimension (see Chapter 4 of the #tagcoding handbook foster heterophilic awareness in search. By taking advantage of Internet and wiki services, it takes only a few seconds to find the coding hashtag for a specific topic in a thematic dimension.

Together, coding hashtags, wikis, and public content serve this purpose: to leverage the Internet and social media to make the world of knowledge smaller for all members of society.

Therefore, the systematized contents referred to in this e-book are offered without a paywall. Your contribution to this e-book allows its author(s) and other volunteers to expand and offer for free a growing collection of systematized content. Together we can demonstrate that #tagcoding of content and the creation of linked wikis are pillars for learning and development, and that they reduce barriers to accessing knowledge that is important for people’s livelihoods.


Thematic dimensions in this e-book

The #tagcoding capability uses thematic dimensions to facilitate knowledge sharing and retrieval:

  • Define topic hashtags in a systematic end-user (single-dimensional) topic dimension, e.g. #isic9101 for library and archive activity, and PH, the ISO country code for the Philippines;
  • Create hashtags for multidimensional topics by combining monodimensional topic codes, e.g., combining #isic9101 with PH to generate #isic9101PH for library and archive activity in the Philippines;
  • Ensuring local language wiki and e-book coverage for all topics in key end-user thematic dimensions (focusing on topics important to a community);
  • Provide a way to search for a specific hashtag in a thematic dimension.

The end-user thematic dimensions covered in this e-book and the corresponding wikis are:

  • Part II - ISIC: “all economic activity” classified in ISIC. ISIC is the abbreviation for International Standard Industrial Classification of All Economic Activities. The class labels and definitions are translations of revision 4. The full structure and definition of each of the 400+ classes can be found on the United Nations Statistics Division website also.
  • Part III - COFOG: “all government functions” classified in COFOG. COFOG is short for Classification of the Functions of Government. The full structure and definition of each of the more than 100 classes can be found in a United Nations Statistics Division publication: Classifications of Expenditure by Purpose: Classification of the Functions of Government (COFOG).
  • Part IV - SDGs: “all sustainable development goals and targets”. Sustainable Development Goals and targets adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in September 2015 and often abbreviated as SDGs, with the hashtag #SDGs.
  • Part V - CPC: “all products and services” classified by CPC. CPC stands for Central Product Classification. The Central Product Classification (CPC) is a comprehensive product classification covering products and services.
  • Part VI - EU Lgu: “units of local government in the EU”. In #EUlgu hashtags combine the ISO 3166 country code with numeric statistical codes of states and counties to provide a unique hashtag for each state, county and parish (in Louisiana).
  • Annex 1: Two-digit ISO 3166 country code for all countries of the world.

CPC #tagcoding hashtags are added to product and service descriptions (in English) in ISIC and COFOG class definitions and their labels.

All classifications may also be consulted online.


A first step of engagement: #tagcoding

Common search engines and many social platforms support hashtag coding, but for most social media platforms the use of hashtags is an “intra-platform” feature.

In the case of Twitter, despite the recent discontinuation of hashtag-based timelines, hashtag search is also open to non-subscribers through Twitter Search. Yet, some limitations apply.

On social platforms anyone can tag content with a hashtag for the issue in the country to make it part of a national discourse that is visible globally.

This makes the discourse on the topic inclusive. Everyone (on the platform) can contribute, without needing to join a specific group or community, or without needing to be “rich or famous” for the contribution to be noticed.

While social media gives you a means to communicate with your social network, coding hashtags allows you to instantly follow a discourse and address it with your own ideas. This is in contrast to being restricted to bubbles (your own network) or content for the general public. If a discourse is moving at a slow pace, older posts can be easily retrieved and the hashtag helps retrieve posts over a longer period of time.

By having hashtags for specific topics, the expected posting intensity per hashtag decreases, and a much better match between content supply and demand is possible. Think of authors or researchers in a community that has adopted the hashtag code. A topic with many posts would indicate an oversupply of content - many authors writing similar things, or researchers doing similar research - while a topic with no posts would indicate neglect of the topic. By #tagcoding their output and searching for previous work, authors and researchers can better allocate their time so that all topics within a thematic dimension receive adequate attention.

Language-neutral hashtags cover every sustainable development goal or target, every government function, every economic activity, every product or service, and every locality. There is a coding hashtag for each person’s livelihood or public service needs. On the Internet and social media, content coded with hashtags is like a word in a dictionary: when you look it up through a search engine, you will find it.


A second step of engagement: #xy2wiki

Bringing tag-based #coding capabilities to institutions in any country and to millions of citizens using many languages is a major challenge.

Since search engines and Internet browsers allow setting language preferences, a first goal of wiki content for any language is the provision of pages explaining the meaning, system and structure of all tag encoding hashtags in the language. This is the goal of the #xy2wiki program, which can be instantiated for any language through its 2- or 3-character ISO 639 code: for example, #bn2wiki (http://bn2.wiki) for Bangla, #pa2wiki for Punjabi (http://pa2.wiki), #tgl2wiki for Tagalog (http://tgl.wiki), #es2wiki (http://es2.wiki) for Spanish, etc.

Each #xy2wiki wiki must provide in the “xy” language all the tools that this manual demonstrates in English (#en2wiki with url http://en2.wiki or http://www.ens.wiki).

To enable a digital Public Sphere and forge the necessary trust between institutions, citizens and businesses, all tagged content, whether limited to one language or not, is merged into a focused discourse stream, including one for each local government unit. Everyone can have a voice in these streams, and everyone can see what others have shared. Because of their combinatorial nature, tags can be highly specialized or rather general. They can be configured according to the scope level at which the public-private discourse occurs.


A third step of engagement: #tag2wiki

Once the #xy2wiki preparations have been completed, native speaking users of the #tagcoding hashtags can be assured that meaning is shared in a wide variety of inclusive lifeworld related content streams - a digital public sphere, truly public and inclusive becomes enabled.

Once hashtags have been adopted at scale in a country or for a language, the search for hashtags is likely to have a limited horizon in the past. Therefore, it is recommended to curate on #xy2wiki pages the contents of tagged posts that provide quality original content on the relevant topics. The use of similar page and wiki naming conventions facilitates the alignment of pages in different languages and/or countries.


A fourth step of commitment: #lean2book

This e-book uses hyperlinks and hashtags to expand the book’s storyline with content that is on the Internet, on wikis and on social platforms. Keep in mind that the e-book reading device is likely to have access to the Internet.

The content referred to can have different access regimes. Content in the public domain is referred to as public content and is available to all under the same access regime, i.e. free of charge and without restrictions on re-use. Content that is protected by copyright or other rights regimes, much of which is found in printed books (#cpc322) or online text-based information (#cpc8431), cannot be reused without the approval of the copyright holder.

The use of hyperlinks in online books or e-books (#cpc84311) such as those published through Leanpub has several advantages:

  • The author can avoid rewording and repackaging existing content, and can build on the work of others in a straightforward and transparent way; the author can focus on original contributions;
  • Content that is on the Internet can evolve and improve between the time the e-book was first produced and the time one reads it, making use of the hyperlink;
  • When hyperlinked content is on wikis or blogs that support discussion or commentary, readers can comment to improve the state of knowledge on a topic or area of interest;
  • Authors can harvest discourse encoded with hashtags to periodically update their book or topical article.

Systematized public content, for example on wikis that are maintained through a #tag2wiki curation approach, draws the attention of authors and readers to the possibility of reusing or referencing such content in their work. By using and expanding systematized public content, its quality and usefulness will gradually improve, especially also in languages where there is still little content online.

The expectation of improving the quality of content gives rise to a subsequent return to specific “content” through hashtag searches, both to discourse and to wiki pages and e-books.

While #tagcoding, #xy2wiki and #tag2wiki are collaborative journeys, e-Book creation is often an individual journey.


A fifth step of engagement: a digital Public Sphere

The “public sphere” is generally conceived as the social space in which different opinions are expressed, problems of general interest are discussed and collective solutions are developed in a communicative way. Thus, the public sphere is the central arena of social communication. In large-scale societies, mass media and, more recently, networked media support and sustain communication in the public sphere.

The Federal President of Germany, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, in his opening speech at the eleventh Bellevue Forum “Democracy and the Digital Public Sphere - A Transatlantic Challenge” (1 March 2021) summarizes the expectations regarding the digital public sphere: “Much is expected of the public sphere in a democracy. It must reflect the plurality of society and be accessible to all, encourage reasoned debate, open up spaces for new ideas and policy goals, provide reliable information, and empower people to participate responsibly in democratic processes. These ideals have guided us since the Enlightenment.

Using #tagcoding as a means of promoting and monitoring a discussion topic has a number of advantages, including:

  • everyone (with a profile on the platform that allows tagged posts) is empowered to contribute to a discussion or debate, meaning they are truly inclusive;
  • when consistently defined hashtags are used, content on very specific topics can be easily retrieved; for example, marine aquaculture in Indonesia has the coding hashtag #isic0312ID;
  • the use of #tagcoding by authors and readers encourages collaborative outreach and avoids information overload, as well as the bewilderment it causes;
  • each encoding hashtag supports a “search” for the “single version of the truth” for the discourse on the searched platform, at any time and in all languages.

Discourse coded with hashtags helps authors and readers update their knowledge on a wide range of related topics and ideas. In addition, systematized public content, reliable information, can be easily updated and expanded. And translation efforts can be focussed such that a wide body of content gets translated in more languages.

If there is a “public content #xy2wiki” for each language (used in a country), maintained by curators who augment it with relevant new content from posts coded with hashtags, this is an important asset for the country’s digital Public Sphere in each of its languages.

In conclusion: the current use of the Internet and social media contributes less to the digital Public Sphere than is possible with the intensive use of #tagcoding, #xy2wiki and #tag2wiki.


Code of Conduct for #tagcoding

By #tagcoding we can combat information overload and disinformation, avoid over-researched topics and make the world of knowledge small for everyone. Success on this global journey also depends on adhering to certain principles when dealing with content that others have created, and when contributing your own content.

It doesn’t make much sense to discover a piece of content through a coding hashtag, and then copy or repeat it, and post it with the same hashtag or a neighboring hashtag (e.g. a different country code). Your content is likely to appear in the same search result as the copied content.

Rather, if you want to reinforce the original author’s message, retweet or repost, like, favorite or +1.

By #tagcoding a new work, the author expresses confidence that its content does not infringe on the copyrights of others, or does not merely repeat what is already available (online).

Avoid spamming or aggressive commercial pushing of content

A common practice in (social) media to reach a wider audience is to repeat the same post regularly or in many places.

For example, on Twitter, some post the same content weekly, daily or more frequently. On LinkedIn or Facebook we can post the same content to multiple groups, etc. Tagging with #tags on a public platform makes this multiple posting unnecessary to reach your target audience (as long as you have adopted the #tagcoding conventions, and your target audience is familiar with the hashtags).

By using hashtags coding, the author or publisher chooses not to spam, because of the excess of content pushing attitudes directed at readers. Post once, and then let readers discover the content, through the hashtags in the content, when they need to. This is called “on-demand”.

Contributing to an inclusive and non-polarizing discourse

A speech has questions and answers. Authors tend to use print and social media to share their answers and opinions, even without questions being asked.

Where can people express their burning questions? Or opinions that they feel are relevant to the public?

People working in a “neglected” economic activity can add appropriate coding hashtags to their question. A question can gain prominence when it is liked by others, or recognized by an expert. And when a capable answerer comes across a featured question, they can be sure that the answer coded with #tags will be appreciated.

The barriers to joining the discourse are much lower on an “open social platform” than on a closed group of application users, or on a closed platform.

By #tagcoding questions they become part of an inclusive discourse, in addition to the answers and arguments.

If the opinion is intended for a social media bubble away from public debate, tagging is not recommended: the use of #tagcoding hashtags indicates that the content is not intended to polarize, but is meant to serve in public debate.


Global adoption of hashtag coding

Adopting #tagcoding at scale is a societal challenge, especially since there is no (direct) commercial or political interest in such adoption.

Some coding hashtags have been “organically” adopted on a global scale. This is the case for the hashtags of the Sustainable Development Goals: #sdg1, #sdg2 to #sdg17. For these hashtags, on Twitter, it is not uncommon that more than a hundred posts per day, or even per hour, are shared. If you are interested in a specific topic, for example the fight against poverty in the EU, the hashtag #sdg1 won’t help you much. On the other hand, if all posts tagged with #sdg1 about fighting poverty in the EU also carried #sdg01EU or #sdg1EU, a simple search for these tags would retrieve the content you are interested in.

Also, some people have intuitively used #sdgKE to share content about sustainable development in Kenya.

Since the beginning of 2018, some knowledge institutions are using hashtags for the Sustainable Development Goals, for example:

  • “#sdt1714 - improve policy coherence for sustainable development;”
  • “#sdt123 - by 2030 halve per capita food waste at retail and consumer levels, and reduce food losses throughout production;”
  • “#sdt61 or #sdt061 - by 2030, achieve universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all;”
  • “#sdt055 or #sdt55 - ensure women’s full and effective participation and equal opportunities for leadership at all levels of decision-making.”

The abundance of #covid19 content, along with the desire of many to ensure that content reaches a specific audience, has inspired many people, including government agencies, to combine #covid19, and more recently also #omicron, with ISO country codes or US state codes. Due to the pandemic and the widespread communication about it through social media, the use of certain forms of #coding tags has increased.

This increased usage has also highlighted the need for “internationally agreed” #tagcoding conventions to avoid homonyms on global platforms such as Twitter and LinkedIn.

Consider the following: around the world, two-character ISO country codes are widely used, usually in combination with #covid19, e.g. #covid19CA for Canada, #covid19CO for Colombia or #covid19IL for Israel. In the United States, on the other hand, it is common to use state abbreviations, such as CA for California, IL for Illinois, CO for Colorado, resulting in the same variants of the #covid19 tag with a very different meaning.

What happens? When users on the “periphery” of a hashtag discover that their distinctive tag codes are already being used in the “core”, they are likely to abandon their good practices. Which is unfortunate because they were doing the right thing. The impact is that users on the periphery are deprived of a platform utility.

For a fair use of a global platform, homonyms in hashtags should be avoided… as a matter of etiquette on the network. It is especially a responsibility of users in the “core”.

The alternative for a US state is a code starting with #covid19US. You could then add the state abbreviation, for example to form #covid19USCA. Or use the state census code, which is 06 for California, to form #covid19US06.

Despite their usefulness for organising content on the Internet and social media, structured hashtags do not easily spread organically. I therefore urge all readers of this e-book to actively promote them in the areas and for the states and counties of their interest, especially also for domestic and local use.

Note that the alphabetical part of the hashtag is not case-sensitive. It also cannot include non-alphanumeric characters, except for the underscore “_”. In longer hashtags of several words it is common to capitalize the first character of each word, as in #MeToo or #AddisAbabaActionAgenda.

About ISIC

The International Standard Industrial Classification of all economic activities (ISIC) is the international reference classification of productive activities. Its main purpose is to provide a set of categories of activities that can be used for the collection and dissemination of statistical data according to those activities. Since the original version of the ISIC was adopted in 1948, most of the countries around the world have been using ISIC as their national business classification, or have developed national classifications derived from it. For The ISIC has become an important tool for international comparisons of statistical data on economic activities. The ISIC has been widely used, both nationally and internationally, to classify data according to the type of economic activity in the various statistics economic and social issues, such as those related to national accounts, demographics of the enterprises, employment and other aspects. In addition, ISIC is also increasingly being used for non-statistical purposes.

ISIC was originally provided as a pdf document (in English, Arabic, French, Chinese, Spanish, Russian and Arabic) and as web pages.

With the support of Wikinetix, a #pdf2wiki conversion was carried out over the last few years, for the six languages in which UN DESA has provided official translations (English, Arabic, French, Chinese, Spanish and Russian), and also for Japanese, German, Kiswahili, Tagalog and Illongo. Some usability improvements have been added for these versions of the wiki:

  • In order to support multilingual discussion through social media and easy retrieval of various contributions relating to a product or service, #tagcoding hashtags were added for all sections, divisions, groups and classes.
  • references to the classes of the Central Product Classification v. 2.1 were added.
  • ISIC class pages (and some other pages) were tagged with #cpc codes and terms from the CPC classification, so that alphabetical #tagcoding tags for goods, services and commodities (a cloud of Hashtags) support the discovery of the #cpc codes and the ISIC class producing the service or product.

To the introduction.

Section A - Agriculture, forestry and fishing

This section includes the exploitation of vegetal and animal natural resources, comprising the activities of growing of crops, raising and breeding of animals, harvesting of timber and other plants, animals or animal products from a farm or their natural habitats.

To the classification.

#isic01 - Crop and animal production, hunting and related service activities

This division includes two basic activities, namely the production of crop products and production of animal products, covering also the forms of organic agriculture, the growing of genetically modified crops and the raising of genetically modified animals.

This division also includes service activities incidental to agriculture, as well as hunting, trapping and related activities.

Group 015 (Mixed farming) breaks with the usual principles for identifying main activity. It accepts that many agricultural holdings have reasonably balanced crop and animal production and that it would be arbitrary to classify them in one category or the other.

Agricultural activities exclude any subsequent processing of the agricultural products (classified under divisions 10 and 11 (Manufacture of food products and beverages) and division 12 (Manufacture of tobacco products)), beyond that needed to prepare them for the primary markets. However, the preparation of products for the primary markets is included here.

The division excludes field construction (e.g. agricultural land terracing, drainage, preparing rice paddies etc.) classified in section F (Construction) and buyers and cooperative associations engaged in the marketing of farm products classified in section G.

To the section.

Section C - Manufacturing

This section includes the physical or chemical transformation of materials, substances, or components into new products, although this cannot be used as the single universal criterion for defining manufacturing (see remark on processing of waste below). The materials, substances, or components transformed are raw materials that are products of agriculture, forestry, fishing, mining or quarrying as well as products of other manufacturing activities. Substantial alteration, renovation or reconstruction of goods is generally considered to be manufacturing.

Units engaged in manufacturing are often described as plants, factories or mills and characteristically use power-driven machines and materials-handling equipment. However, units that transform materials or substances into new products by hand or in the worker’s home and those engaged in selling to the general public of products made on the same premises from which they are sold, such as bakeries and custom tailors, are also included in this section. Manufacturing units may process materials or may contract with other units to process their materials for them. Both types of units are included in manufacturing.

The output of a manufacturing process may be finished in the sense that it is ready for utilization or consumption, or it may be semi-finished in the sense that it is to become an input for further manufacturing. For example, the output of alumina refining is the input used in the primary production of aluminium; primary aluminium is the input to aluminium wire drawing; and aluminium wire is the input for the manufacture of fabricated wire products.

Manufacture of specialized components and parts of, and accessories and attachments to, machinery and equipment is, as a general rule, classified in the same class as the manufacture of the machinery and equipment for which the parts and accessories are intended. Manufacture of unspecialized components and parts of machinery and equipment, e.g. engines, pistons, electric motors, electrical assemblies, valves, gears, roller bearings, is classified in the appropriate class of manufacturing, without regard to the machinery and equipment in which these items may be included. However, making specialized components and accessories by moulding or extruding plastics materials is included in class 2220.

Assembly of the component parts of manufactured products is considered manufacturing. This includes the assembly of manufactured products from either self-produced or purchased components.

The recovery of waste, i.e. the processing of waste into secondary raw materials is classified in class 3830 (Materials recovery). While this may involve physical or chemical transformations, this is not considered to be a part of manufacturing. The primary purpose of these activities is considered to be the treatment or processing of waste and they are therefore classified in Section E (Water supply; sewerage, waste management and remediation activities). However, the manufacture of new final products (as opposed to secondary raw materials) is classified in manufacturing, even if these processes use waste as an input. For example, the production of silver from film waste is considered to be a manufacturing process.

Specialized maintenance and repair of industrial, commercial and similar machinery and equipment is, in general, classified in division 33 (Repair, maintenance and installation of machinery and equipment). However, the repair of computers and personal and household goods is classified in division 95 (Repair of computers and personal and household goods), while the repair of motor vehicles is classified in division 45 (Wholesale and retail trade and repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles).

The installation of machinery and equipment, when carried out as a specialized activity, is classified in 3320.

Remark: The boundaries of manufacturing and the other sectors of the classification system can be somewhat blurry. As a general rule, the activities in the manufacturing section involve the transformation of materials into new products. Their output is a new product. However, the definition of what constitutes a new product can be somewhat subjective. As clarification, the following activities are considered manufacturing in ISIC:

  • milk pasteurizing and bottling (see 1050)
  • fresh fish processing (oyster shucking, fish filleting), not done on a fishing boat (see 1020)
  • printing and related activities (see 1811, 1812)
  • ready-mixed concrete production (see 2395)
  • leather converting (see 1511)
  • wood preserving (see 1610)
  • electroplating, plating, metal heat treating, and polishing (see 2592)
  • rebuilding or remanufacturing of machinery (e.g. automobile engines, see 2910)
  • tyre retreading (see 2211)

Conversely, there are activities that, although sometimes involving transformation processes, are classified in other sections of ISIC; in other words, they are not classified as manufacturing. They include:

  • logging, classified in section A (Agriculture, forestry and fishing);
  • beneficiating of agricultural products, classified in section A (Agriculture, forestry and fishing);
  • beneficiating of ores and other minerals, classified in section B (Mining and quarrying);
  • construction of structures and fabricating operations performed at the site of construction, classified in section F (Construction);
  • activities of breaking bulk and redistribution in smaller lots, including packaging, repackaging or bottling of products, such as liquors or chemicals; sorting of scrap; mixing of paints to customers’ order; and cutting of metals to customers’ order, producing a modified version of the same product, are classified to section G (Wholesale and retail trade; repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles).

To the classification.

#isic10 - Manufacture of food products

This division includes the processing of the products of agriculture, forestry and fishing into food for humans or animals, and includes the production of various intermediate products that are not directly food products. The activity often generates associated products of greater or lesser value (for example, hides from slaughtering, or oilcake from oil production).

This division is organized by activities dealing with different kinds of products: meat, fish, fruit and vegetables, fats and oils, milk products, grain mill products, animal feeds and other food products. Production can be carried out for own account, as well as for third parties, as in custom slaughtering.

Some activities are considered manufacturing (for example, those performed in bakeries, pastry shops, and prepared meat shops etc. which sell their own production) even though there is retail sale of the products in the producers’ own shop. However, where the processing is minimal and does not lead to a real transformation, the unit is classified to Wholesale and retail trade (section G).

Production of animal feeds from slaughter waste or by-products is classified in 1080, while processing food and beverage waste into secondary raw material is classified to 3830, and disposal of food and beverage waste in 3821.

#isic17 - Manufacture of paper and paper products

This division includes the manufacture of pulp, paper and converted paper products. The manufacture of these products is grouped together because they constitute a series of vertically connected processes. More than one activity is often carried out in a single unit. There are essentially three activities: The manufacture of pulp involves separating the cellulose fibers from other impurities in wood or used paper. The manufacture of paper involves matting these fibers into a sheet. Converted paper products are made from paper and other materials by various cutting and shaping techniques, including coating and laminating activities. The paper articles may be printed (e.g. wallpaper, gift wrap etc.), as long as the printing of information is not the main purpose.

The production of pulp, paper and paperboard in bulk is included in class 1701, while the remaining classes include the production of further-processed paper and paper products.

#isic18 - Printing and reproduction of recorded media

This division includes printing of products, such as newspapers, books, periodicals, business forms, greeting cards, and other materials, and associated support activities, such as bookbinding, plate-making services, and data imaging. The support activities included here are an integral part of the printing industry, and a product (a printing plate, a bound book, or a computer disk or file) that is an integral part of the printing industry is almost always provided by these operations.

Processes used in printing include a variety of methods for transferring an image from a plate, screen, or computer file to a medium, such as paper, plastics, metal, textile articles, or wood. The most prominent of these methods entails the transfer of the image from a plate or screen to the medium through lithographic, gravure, screen or flexographic printing. Often a computer file is used to directly ‘’drive’’ the printing mechanism to create the image or electrostatic and other types of equipment (digital or non-impact printing).

Though printing and publishing can be carried out by the same unit (a newspaper, for example), it is less and less the case that these distinct activities are carried out in the same physical location.

This division also includes the reproduction of recorded media, such as compact discs, video recordings, software on discs or tapes, records etc.

This division excludes publishing activities (see section J).

#isic31 - Manufacture of furniture

This division includes the manufacture of furniture and related products of any material except stone, concrete and ceramic. The processes used in the manufacture of furniture are standard methods of forming materials and assembling components, including cutting, moulding and laminating. The design of the article, for both aesthetic and functional qualities, is an important aspect of the production process.

Some of the processes used in furniture manufacturing are similar to processes that are used in other segments of manufacturing. For example, cutting and assembly occurs in the production of wood trusses that are classified in division 16 (Manufacture of wood and wood products). However, the multiple processes distinguish wood furniture manufacturing from wood product manufacturing. Similarly, metal furniture manufacturing uses techniques that are also employed in the manufacturing of roll-formed products classified in division 25 (Manufacture of fabricated metal products). The molding process for plastics furniture is similar to the molding of other plastics products. However, the manufacture of plastics furniture tends to be a specialized activity.

#isic33 - Repair and installation of machinery and equipment

This division includes the specialized repair of goods produced in the manufacturing sector with the aim to restore machinery, equipment and other products to working order. The provision of general or routine maintenance (i.e. servicing) on such products to ensure they work efficiently and to prevent breakdown and unnecessary repairs is included.

This division does only include specialized repair and maintenance activities. A substantial amount of repair is also done by manufacturers of machinery, equipment and other goods, in which case the classification of units engaged in these repair and manufacturing activities is done according to the value-added principle which would often assign these combined activities to the manufacture of the good. The same principle is applied for combined trade and repair.

The rebuilding or remanufacturing of machinery and equipment is considered a manufacturing activity and included in other divisions of this section.

Repair and maintenance of goods that are utilized as capital goods as well as consumer goods is typically classified as repair and maintenance of household goods (e.g. office and household furniture repair, see 9524).

Also included in this division is the specialized installation of machinery. However, the installation of equipment that forms an integral part of buildings or similar structures, such as installation of electrical wiring, installation of escalators or installation of air-conditioning systems, is classified as construction.

This division excludes the cleaning of industrial machinery (see class 8129) and the repair and maintenance of computers, communications equipment and household goods (see division 95).

Section G - Wholesale and retail trade; repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles

This section includes wholesale and retail sale (i.e. sale without transformation) of any type of goods and the rendering of services incidental to the sale of these goods. Wholesaling and retailing are the final steps in the distribution of goods. Goods bought and sold are also referred to as merchandise.

Also included in this section are the repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles.

Sale without transformation is considered to include the usual operations (or manipulations) associated with trade, for example sorting, grading and assembling of goods, mixing (blending) of goods (for example sand), bottling (with or without preceding bottle cleaning), packing, breaking bulk and repacking for distribution in smaller lots, storage (whether or not frozen or chilled), cleaning and drying of agricultural products, cutting out of wood fibreboards or metal sheets as secondary activities.

Division 45 includes all activities related to the sale and repair of motor vehicles and motorcycles, while divisions 46 and 47 include all other sale activities. The distinction between division 46 (wholesale) and division 47 (retail sale) is based on the predominant type of customer.

Wholesale is the resale (sale without transformation) of new and used goods to retailers, to industrial, commercial, institutional or professional users, or to other wholesalers, or involves acting as an agent or broker in buying goods for, or selling goods to, such persons or companies. The principal types of businesses included are merchant wholesalers, i.e. wholesalers who take title to the goods they sell, such as wholesale merchants or jobbers, industrial distributors, exporters, importers, and cooperative buying associations, sales branches and sales offices (but not retail stores) that are maintained by manufacturing or mining units apart from their plants or mines for the purpose of marketing their products and that do not merely take orders to be filled by direct shipments from the plants or mines. Also included are merchandise brokers, commission merchants and agents and assemblers, buyers and cooperative associations engaged in the marketing of farm products. Wholesalers frequently physically assemble, sort and grade goods in large lots, break bulk, repack and redistribute in smaller lots, for example pharmaceuticals; store, refrigerate, deliver and install goods, engage in sales promotion for their customers and label design.

Retailing is the resale (sale without transformation) of new and used goods mainly to the general public for personal or household consumption or utilization, by shops, department stores, stalls, mail-order houses, door-to-door sales persons, hawkers and peddlers, consumer cooperatives, auction houses etc. Most retailers take title to the goods they sell, but some act as agents for a principal and sell either on consignment or on a commission basis.

Wholesale is the resale (sale without transformation) of new and used goods to retailers, business-to-business trade, such as to industrial, commercial, institutional or professional users, or resale to other wholesalers, or involves acting as an agent or broker in buying goods for, or selling goods to, such persons or companies. The principal types of businesses included are merchant wholesalers, i.e. wholesalers who take title to the goods they sell, such as wholesale merchants or jobbers, industrial distributors, exporters, importers, and cooperative buying associations, sales branches and sales offices (but not retail stores) that are maintained by manufacturing or mining units apart from their plants or mines for the purpose of marketing their products and that do not merely take orders to be filled by direct shipments from the plants or mines. Also included are merchandise brokers, commission merchants and agents and assemblers, buyers and cooperative associations engaged in the marketing of farm products.

Wholesalers frequently physically assemble, sort and grade goods in large lots, break bulk, repack and redistribute in smaller lots, for example pharmaceuticals; store, refrigerate, deliver and install goods, engage in sales promotion for their customers and label design.

This division excludes the wholesale of motor vehicles, caravans and motorcycles, as well as motor vehicle accessories (see division 45), the renting and leasing of goods (see division 77) and the packing of solid goods and bottling of liquid or gaseous goods, including blending and filtering, for third parties (see class 8292).

Section O - Public administration and defence; compulsory social security

This section includes activities of a governmental nature, normally carried out by the public administration. This includes the enactment and judicial interpretation of laws and their pursuant regulation, as well as the administration of programmes based on them, legislative activities, taxation, national defence, public order and safety, immigration services, foreign affairs and the administration of government programmes.

This means that activities classified elsewhere in ISIC do not fall under this section, even if carried out by public entities. For example, administration of the school system (i.e. regulations, checks, curricula) falls under this section, but teaching itself does not (see section P), and a prison or military hospital is classified to health (see section Q).

About COFOG

The Classification of the Functions of General Government (COFOG) was developed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and published by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD). It can be applied to government expenditure and net acquisition of non-financial assets (outlays). COFOG has three levels of detail: Divisions, Groups and Classes. Divisions could be considered as the general objectives of general government, while groups and classes detail the means by which these general objectives are achieved. The initials “CS” or “IS” follow the title of each class in brackets to indicate whether the services produced by general government units and included in this class are collective or individual services and therefore whether individual and collective final consumption expenditure should be recorded in the respective functions. This is in line with the provisions of ESA 2010 paragraphs 3.104-3.107. This appendix reproduces the description of the COFOG classification published by the UNSD. To this description, COFOG TF has added comments on the ESA operation to be used.

The references in the comments refer to the accounts of the European System of Accounts ESA-95.

Tags: public-services-n.e.c.-#cpc91119

#cofog017 - Public debt transactions

Comment: This group should contain all interest, payable (D.41) from general government, as well as all P.2 related to FISIM (including FISIM on deposits). Thus, only transactions D.4, P.2, TE and P.32/P.3 are expected to be observed. In addition, FISIM should be considered as referring to non-market output only, therefore P.2 is expected to be equal to P.32 in this group.

The rationale for also including FISIM on deposits in group 01.7 has both conceptual and practical reasons.

On conceptual grounds, it can be argued that the management of public debt is closely related to the management of public deposits. As for practical reasons, the inclusion of FISIM on deposits allows a comparison between countries where the allocation of expenditure by COFOG is done before allocating FISIM on deposits related to intermediate consumption, and between countries using P.2 including the full allocation of FISIM.

A conceptual argument could be made that direct service charges in public debt management (ESA 2010, paragraphs 3.68-3.73) should be treated in the same way as FISIM on loans. For countries where asset holding and debt management are highly centralized, this could be a good conceptual option. However, in many cases, the lack of detailed data is likely to prevent such an allocation and was not considered practical.

#cofog0170 - PUBLIC DEBT TRANSACTIONS (CS)

Interest payments and subscription and flotation charges on government loans.

Excludes: administrative costs of public debt management (01.12).

Tags: public-debt-#cpc7113

#cofog018 - Transfers of a general character between different levels of government

Comment: In this group, at the general government sub-sector level, only transactions are foreseen in D.4N, D.7 (D.73 and D.75) and D.9 and therefore ET.

At the general government level, all amounts should be consolidated, which implies that total general government expenditure in this group should be zero.

To consolidate the transfers in D.7 and D.9, to which a function cannot be assigned, this group should be used as a priority.

To the division

#cofog0180 - TRANSFERS OF A GENERAL CHARACTER BETWEEN DIFFERENT LEVELS OF GOVERNMENT (CS)

Transfers between different levels of government that are general in nature and not assigned to a particular function.

Tags: general-character-#cpc91119


#cofog02 - Defense

Comment: In Division 02, there are no amounts for D.3 (other than R&D), D.62, D.632, P.31, D.41 and D.8 are expected.

To the root.

#cofog021 - Military defense

Comment: In group 02.1, amounts for D.3 are unlikely to occur. In this group, expenses at sub-central level and consolidation amounts are not normally expected. Subsidies to the defence industry should be recorded in group 04.4.

Expenditures on individual services and transfers are allocated to groups (101) to (107); expenditures on collective services are allocated to groups (108) and (109).

Collective social protection services deal with such matters as the formulation and administration of government policy; the formulation and implementation of legislation and standards to provide social protection; and applied research and experimental development in social protection matters and services.

Social protection functions and their definitions are based on the 1996 European System of Integrated Social Protection Statistics (ESSPROS) of the Statistical Office of the European Communities (Eurostat). In ESSPROS, social protection includes health care, but this division does not include health care. Health care is covered by Division 07. Therefore, medical goods and services provided to persons receiving the cash and in-kind benefits specified in groups (101) to (107) are classified in (071), (072) or (073), as appropriate.
