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.
