About the book
This publication provides statistics on the production of about 600 major industrial commodities. Data are provided for the ten-year period of 2003-2012 for approximately 200 countries and territories. The commodities have been selected on the basis of their importance in world production and trade. The Yearbook provides data on the quantities and values of industrial production for the major industrial commodities. The Yearbook is therefore organized in two volumes: Volume I: Physical Quantity Data and Volume II: Monetary Value Data. The publication contains three annexes to assist the user: an index of commodities in alphabetical order; a table of correspondence among the CPC-based commodity codes and the International Standard Industrial Classification (ISIC), Revs. 4 and 3.1, the Harmonized System (HS) 2007 and 2002 and Prodcom 2008 and 2002; and information on all the classifications used in this publication.
