Commodity Production Statistics, 1958-1979 (ICPSR 7894)

Principal Investigator(s): United Nations


The United Nations created this dataset using data from reporting countries regarding their yearly commodity production for the years 1958-1979. For each country, year, and commodity, statistics are given on the quantity produced. Commodities are classified according to international industrial classification group standards and include agricultural and livestock production, ocean and coastal fishing, chemical and fertilizer mineral production, manufacture of bakery products, spinning and weaving, manufacture of machinery, and manufacture of musical instruments. The data are collected in two files: Part one contains information for the years 1964-1979, Part two for the years 1958-1973 (with some instances of overlapping data years in the files). The data in this collection constitute the master file of input to the YEARBOOK OF INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION, VOLUME II.
