UN Comtrade Conversion table from HS2007 to SITC,Rev.3
(work in progress)
The purpose of this article is to explain how to convert detailed data (6-digit sub-headings) provided by countries in the 2007 version of the Harmonized System (HS2007) into data according to the Standard International Trade Classification, Revision 3 (SITC, Rev.3) at the most detailed level possible. This will allow users of UN Comtrade to continue to extract time series data by sections, divisions, group, sub-group and basic headings of SITC, Rev.3, despite the fact that data for later years is provided in HS2007.
Please note that this data conversion is solely implemented for the convenience of data users. It is based on the best judgment of the staff at the United Nations Statistics Division but has no binding character whatsoever. Data users are free to convert the original data provided by countries to different classifications according to their own criteria.
