Draft documents on IRDTS
This website has been created to facilitate worldwide consultation on the drafting of the International Recommendations for Distributive Trade Statistics (IRDTS) 2008.
The provisional draft was prepared in accordance with the decision of the 37th Session of the United Nations Statistical Commission (2006) to revise the existing recommendations in that area of statistics in close consultation with national statistical offices in order to fully reflect the specific needs and circumstances of various groups of countries. It represents UNSD's efforts to update the existing recommendations in the context of promoting an integrated approach to the compilation of statistics pertaining to various sectors of the economy.
The draft incorporates contributions previously received from a number of countries, including those who are members of the United Nations Expert Group on Distributive Trade Statistics (EGDTS).
