Regional Groupings


Changes in Regions as reported in the International Trade Statistical Yearbook

Q: I am responsible for collecting and comparing macroeconomic data for individual countries and groups of countries. In my work I use UN publications, especially "Monthly Bulletin of Statistics" and MBS online database.

In 11/2006 number of "Monthly Bulletin of Statistics" in table 38 regarding exports and imports data you have changed composition of the regions.

Do you intend to do any further changes in that scope in the nearest future?

A: As you correctly noted, we have changed the regions in our trade publications to be in line with the regions used for the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs), see http://mdgs.un.org/unsd/mdg/Host.aspx?Content=Data/RegionalGroupings.htm
