Description

The United Nations Commodity Trade Statistics Dabatabse (UN Comtrade) contains detailed imports and exports statistics reported by statistical authorities of close to 200 countries or areas. It contains annual trade data from 1962 and monthly trade statistics from 2010 to the current year. UN Comtrade is considered the most comprehensive trade database available with more than 1 billion records. The database is continuously updated. Whenever trade data is received from the national authorities, the data is standardized by the UN Statistics Division and then added to UN Comtrade.
