1.3 Activity Weights

To identify how many companies to include from each sector, we compute a proxy for a sector/activity weight within each country. Using data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA – available here) and Eurostat (available here), we obtain country-wise sectoral GDP contribution data for each year and use that to split the GDP across PECCS activity classes. We also perform adjustments to the sectoral share to account for industry definitions and the tangibility of companies in each sector, all of which affect the capital structure choices and hence the institutional investability of these indices. The results of such sectoral attribution are shown in Figure 4 below for the year 2022, aggregated by regions for readability.
