Management of and policy planning for minerals require reliable information on the flow of materials through the economy. This report describes several case studies of information-critical minerals and evaluates for each mineral the feasibility of implementing a sic-based, end-use data scheme. The scheme proposed will lead to an improved information base for understanding the sectoral demand for minerals. The ojectives of the data base are to improve the forecasting of demand for each mineral and to identify the extent of dependency between economic activity and materials demand. A two-dimensional information sysem is proposed. The first dimension measures the consumption of minerals in primary intermediate products (technical product classes). The second measures the consumption of technical product classes in sic-based, end-use sectors. The scheme permits inter-commodity comparisons at the sic two-digit level.
