International Cooperation in Classifications

International cooperation in classifications spans a number of activities across all countries and regions of the world. United Nations statistical classifications are used in some way by virtually every country. An integral part of the work of international cooperation in classifications is to ensure harmonization and standardization, so that changes in statistical classifications at the international level, consistently reverberate through multinational/regional levels to the national level. This is accomplished through the sharing of information in Expert Group meetings, regional workshops, country visits as well as through ongoing interaction on the Statistical Classifications Hotline, Discussion Forum and other communication channels.
