Handbook of Statistics 2022
The Handbook of Statistics 2022 provides a wide range of statistics and indicators relevant to the analysis of international trade, investment, maritime transport and development.
The Handbook and the UNCTADstat Data Center make internationally comparable sets of data available to policymakers, research specialists, academics, officials from national governments, representatives of international organizations, journalists, executive managers and members of non-governmental organizations.
UNCTAD’s nowcasts are data and model-based predictions of global trade and GDP period over period growth. The latest data available and data revisions are fed into models on a weekly basis to update and revise the nowcasts and provide insight on current economic and trade conditions well before final figures are published with several months’ delay.

Oceans and seas cover over two-thirds of the earth's surface and can play a major role in contributing to achieving sustainable development, economic growth, and livelihoods.The identification of sustainable ocean economy sectors and their respective Harmonized System codes was conducted in the UNCTAD report ‘Towards a harmonized international trade classification for the development of sustainable ocean-based economies’.
