Price and Quantity Measurement in External Trade: Two studies of national practice

Series M No. 76
Year 1983
This publication has been designed as a supplement to Strategies for Price and Quantity Measurement in External Trade; a technical report prepared by the Statistical Office of the United Nations Secretariat and published in 1981. By presenting two case studies of national practices and experience, this report aims to provide detailed practical guidance on the development and implementation of the two main approaches to price and quantity measurement in external trade. The relative merits of the two approaches and a method combining the best features of each have been extensively discussed in the earlier report. Both publications should be of direct assistance to countries initiating work in this important area, as well as to those planning to improve existing work.
