ICP Classification
• ICP Classification of Final Expenditure on GDP follows Classifications of
Expenditure According to Purpose prepared by the United Nations and also
Classification of Products by Activity by Eurostat.
• Individual consumption expenditure by NPISHs contains only one basic heading
while actual COPNI classifies expenditures of NPISHs according to the purpose they
serve. Individual consumption expenditure by Government and Collective
consumption expenditure by Government covers various areas of economy defined by
COFOG. ICP basic headings follow System of National Accounts definitions rather
than classifying basic headings according to the sectors.
Regional Classification and
In the 2005 round of the ICP, Africa followed their own classification comprised of
220 basic headings while the global one only has 155 basic headings and the rest of
the regions followed this 155-level breakdown. As the OECD-Eurostat's PPP program
is independent, they also follow their own classification which differ from that of the
ICP in some categories. The mapping table will present how each region's
classification, if they have any separate one, corresponds to the ICP Classification.
Country and Currency
The mapping table provides both 2-digit and 3-digit country codes prepared by the
International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as well as that of the World
Bank which the ICP currently adopts. The ICP codes are widely adopted by the
participating countries and regions for data submission and reporting purposes.
Unit of Measurement
The Global Office developed the Global Core List with 661 products and along with
this the Regional Coordinators created regional lists reflecting regional socioeconomic situations. The products in the lists are defined by the Structured Product
Descriptions (SPD) one of which is Unit of Measurement. The table shows complete
list of unit of measurement and some abbreviations if there exist commonlyadopted ones.
In the 2005 round, the ICP collected information on 46 occupations which followed
International Standard Classification of Occupations (ISCO)-88 developed by the
ILO. The ISCO code had undergone significant revision and the updated version was
approved in 2008 (ISCO-08). Thus the 2011 round of the ICP follows the revised
version of the ISCO code and covers 44 occupations as listed in the table.
Private Education
The Global Core List includes 7 products under the basic heading 1110111 Education.
With the exception of Other Education Programs, the ICP classification of education
follows International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED) 1997 developed
by UNESCO. ISCED is currently undergoing revision and recommendations will be
submitted to UNESCO's General Conference for approval in October 2011.
