Summary
Reports indices, base previous year=100, of merchandise trade for imports for available individual countries, geographical regions, and economic groupings. Note that limited partner aggregates are available. The dataset provides value, volume and unit value indices, base previous year=100, of merchandise trade. A value index number is formed from the ratio of aggregate values in the given period to the aggregate values in the base period. Strictly speaking this is not an index number as ordinarily understood but a value relative. A unit value index is a “price” index that measures the change in the average value of units that are not homogeneous and which may therefore be affected by changes in the mix of items as well as by changes in their prices. A volume index is most commonly presented as a weighted average of the proportionate changes in the quantities of a specified set of goods or services between two periods of time; volume indices may also compare the relative levels of activity in different countries (eg, those calculated using PPPs). Value indices are calculated by the WTO, based on the WTO Merchandise Trade dataset. Unit value indices are sourced mainly from national sources and WTO estimations based on World Bank/IMF commodity prices. Unit value indices from South and Central American countries are based on ECLAC data. Data for individual European Union members are drawn from Eurostat. Other sources used for the indices include the IMF International Trade Statistics and UNCTAD. Volume indices are calculated by the WTO, deflating the value indices with the unit value indices.
