1 United Nations Statistics Division ICT, Information and Intellectual Property Products An overview of concepts and how they relate to the CPC Ver. 2

2 ISIC Rev.4 contain an alternative aggregate for an “ICT sector” definition and a “content and media” sector definition. Likewise, CPC Ver.2 comes with an alternative aggregate for the “information economy” product definition. These aggregates originates from the work of an OECD Working Party working in the context of developing indicators on the information society. (WPIIS) Their first ICT definition came out in Since then, development in NAICS and later ISIC have been important for driving the development of these sector and product definitions. In the development of these definitions, a number of concepts were defined and used. Background
