About the book
The 2011 International Trade Statistics Yearbook, Volume II - Trade by Commodity contains detailed tables showing international trade for 258 individual commodities and eleven world trade tables covering trade values and indices up to the year 2011. The information contained is based on data provided by approximately 140 countries, representing more than 90% of world trade of 2011 and has been compiled approximately six months after the submission of Volume I as the preparation of these tables requires and benefits from the additional country data. Volume I - Trade by Country has been compiled early in 2011 to allow for an advanced release of an overview of international merchandise trade in 2011. Volume II contains updated versions of the two world trade tables A and D published in Volume I.
