Standardna klasifikacija dejavnostiCountry / Area: Slovenia
|1 (a)||Name of the current national classification (full name in official national languages and in English with acronyms in brackets, should be given)||Standardna klasifikacija dejavnosti 2008 (SKD 2008); Standard Classification of Activities 2008|

|Relationship to international standards|
|3 (a)||Is this classification based on (or linked to) an international standard classification? If yes, please describe.||Yes, SKD 2008 is up to the class level based on NACE Rev. 2, Statistical classification of economic activities in the European Community. |
Reasons for the introduction of national subclasses are specific national needs related to:
• economic and social situation
• requests from some important stakeholders, institutions
• statistical needs (e.g. national accounts, other)
|3 (b)||Is the classification structure identical to the international standard or, if not, how does it differ? (e.g. have additional levels been added to the international standard or have changes been made within the level of the international structure, such as aggregations or additional breakdowns)||An additional level has been added as a national subclass.|
SKD 2008 consists of NACE Rev. 2 codes + 648 national subclasses.
National subclass is defined at the 5th digit level (XX.XXX)
|3 (c)||Please describe deviations from the international standard (in terms of structure, methodology or application rules). Please use examples, if a general statement is not possible.||The structure and methodology are harmonized up to the class level. For subclasses, the national structure and methodology are applied.|
One of the cases:
We have introduced a national subclass for companies employing disabled people. The proposal came from governmental agencies and NGOs. Companies employing disabled people are border case (economic/social). They are subsidized from the state and exempt from some taxes. They sell their products and services on the market and play an important social role.
For class 88.10 two subclasses were introduced:
• 88.101 – Activity of enterprises employing disabled people
• 88.109 – Other social work activities without accommodation for the elderly and disabled
|3 (d)||At what level of the international standard can data be reported for international comparison? (Please provide examples of programmes / indicators if reporting takes place at different levels of the classification.)||Data can be reported at different levels from section to class level. The levels of reporting are regulated in different EU regulations.|
|3 (e)||If no links to international classifications exist or no international standard is used, please state if there are plans to use international norms in the future.|
|4 (a)||Please state for which statistical purposes (surveys etc.) this classification is used and if there are users outside of the Statistical Office. Please indicate at which level the classification is used for data collection and for data publishing.||In the Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia SKD 2008 is used for different statistical surveys (social, business, national accounts, environmental statistics, etc.)|
For data collection the classification is mainly used at the subclass level, for data publishing it is regulated by national and EU legal acts.
Users outside of the Statistical Office are different ministries, Institute of Macroeconomic Analysis and Development of the Republic of Slovenia, National Institute of Public Health of Republic of Slovenia, Bank of Slovenia, different chambers (e.g. Chamber of Craft and Small Business), etc.
|4 (b)||Please give the names of institutions that use the classification for non-statistical purposes (as opposed to statistical purposes in question 4(a)). Also indicate the kind of use (e.g. tax offices, social security, customs, enterprise register, employment services, work permits etc.)||AJPES (Agency of the Republic of Slovenia for Public Legal Records and Related Services) is responsible for the classification of the units of the register (management body for the National Administrative Business Register) http://www.ajpes.si/?language=english|
The Administrative Business Register use classification for identification of main and secondary activities of legal and local units. It is used for different administrative and commercial uses (tax offices, ministries, enterprises, etc.)
The Statistical Office of the Republic of Slovenia is responsible for interpretation (explanation) of the scope of the activity codes of the SKD 2008 classification.
Institutions that use the classification for non-statistical purposes are Ajpes, E-Vem offices (they carry out services, which are linked to the formation of a company; for registration of companies´ changes in court/business register), different ministries, tax offices, Pension and Invalidity Insurance Institute of Slovenia, customs, different chambers, National and university Library, enterprises, etc.
|4 (c)||Please indicate if alternative classifications are used by other institutions of the economy. Are these classifications available and useful for the Statistical Office?||For specific domains the different institutions have introduced their internal classification based on SKD 2008. (Chamber of Craft and Small Business of Slovenia, National Institute of Public Health of Republic of Slovenia, etc.) The Statistical Office does not use them.|
|Implementation / revision status|
|5 (a)||Please state the date of the official adoption of the classification.
