The difference between World and All countries in WITS
What is the difference between World
and All countries when I choose partner countries in WITS?
When submitting “ALL” countries as a reporter with “countries in WITS” as the partner, the result will include both World
aggregate data and the WITS country's data.
There does not exist an entity for World
as a reporter (whereas there is World
as a Partner), because not all countries or areas in the world
report to us. However, you can create your dummy World
total by aggregating all available Reporters (for any given year and classification). You should make this as one of your favorite Country Groups.
