This new publication serves as a guide for developing countries for a comprehensive, reliable and regular collection of energy statistics. Various sources of inconsistencies, such as sources of data, concepts and definitions and time spans/coverage, are discussed in detail for all types of energy commodities and recommendations are provided to minimize or eliminate them. The manual also suggests the use of supplementary data to provide a better overview of national energy developments and to verify the accuracy and coverage of routinely-collected data. The presentation of data is also discussed, with emphasis on commodity tables and energy balances. Lastly, with the increasing use of microcomputers, a brief description is given of some software packages for energy data management and planning.
