Series: P, No.47
Volume: I and II
The 2007 Industrial Commodity Statistics Yearbook is the forty-first in a series of annual compilations of statistics on world industry designed to meet both the general demand for information of this kind and the special requirements of the United Nations and related international bodies.
The Yearbook provides statistics on the production of about 600 major industrial commodities. Data are provided for a ten-year period and for approximately 200 countries and territories. The commodities have been selected on the basis of their importance in world production and trade.
This edition of the Yearbook is the third to provide data on the value of industrial production, in addition to quantities of industrial production that have been the scope of previous editions of the Yearbook. The Yearbook is therefore organized in two volumes: Volume I: Physical Quantity Data and Volume II: Monetary Value Data.
Annexes to the publication provide information to assist the user, including an index of commodities in alphabetical order, as well as a table of correspondence among the CPC-based commodity codes and the International Standard Industrial Classification (ISIC), Rev.3.1, the Harmonized System (HS) 2002 and Prodcom 2002.
