For testing purposes a well documented example data set is used from the Eurostat manual. The table in the Eurostat manual is brought to the format used by the Eurostat database. It is a small dataset for examples, but it is also instructive to understand how Eurostat stores the highly structured SIOTs in long-form tidy datasets. The labels were slightly alterred to reflect the transition from the vocabulary of ESA95 to ESA2010 since the publication of the Manual.
