This data collection contains energy commodity production statistics for approximately 200 United Nations reporting countries for the years 1970-1979. In this file, each record refers to an individual reporting country and the quantity of its various transactions (e.g., production, imports, exports, bunkers, additions to stocks, and capacity) for a given energy commodity in a given year. Only annual data are included. The 70 types of commodities reported include solid fuels (e.g., coal, peat, and charcoal), liquid fuels (e.g., crude petroleum, gasoline, and kerosene), gases, uranium, and both industrial and public types of geothermal, hydro, and nuclear generated electricity. Information is also included on the population (in thousands) of the reporting country, the quantity of the commodity per transaction, and the date of the transaction. Supplementary data not contained in this data collection are in the introduction and footnotes of the individual tables published in the YEARBOOK OF WORLD ENERGY STATISTICS, 1979.

1970 -- 1979

1970 -- 1980

Each record refers to an individual reporting country and its quantity of production, trade, or other transactions relating to a particular commodity in a given year. When the transaction of trade is involved, it refers to total trade, i.e., excluding reference to countries of origin or destination. Furthermore, there is no aggregate record by reporting countries or by commodities. There is no instance of two or more records referring to the same reporting country and same commodity transaction in the same period, i.e., each record is uniquely identified by reporting country, transaction, commodity, and period code.
