JODI Gas Manual

In response to the need for short-term statistics on natural gas, the partner organizations of the Joint Organizations Data Initiative (JODI) - APEC, Eurostat, IEA, IEF, OLADE, OPEC and UNSD - started in 2009 on a trial basis to collect monthly data on natural gas based on a simple questionnaire that covers the major flows of natural gas.

To this day, about 70 countries are submitting JODI Gas data covering about two thirds of the global supply and demand.

The JODI Gas Manual has been prepared by UNSD in close cooperation with JODI partner organizations to provide:

   - Guidance on the reporting in the JODI Gas Questionnaire
   - Reference for concepts and definitions
   - Examples of data collection and validation methods
   - Examples of country practices in the collection of JODI gas data

The JODI Gas Manual is intended to be used by compilers and users of monthly gas data. The definitions presented in the JODI Gas Manual are fully consistent with the definitions presented in the International Recommendations for Energy Statistics (IRES).
