Import volume index (2000 = 100) (World) - 2018
* Data Description : Import volume indexes are derived from UNCTADs volume index series and are the ratio of the import value indexes to the corresponding unit value indexes. Unit value indexes are based on data reported by countries that demonstrate consistency under UNCTAD quality controls, supplemented by UNCTADâ€™s estimates using the previous yearâ€™s trade values at the Standard International Trade Classification three-digit level as weights. To improve data coverage, especially for the latest periods, UNCTAD constructs a set of average prices indexes at the three-digit product classification of the Standard International Trade Classification revision 3 using UNCTADâ€™s Commodity Price Statistics, internaÂtional and national sources, and UNCTAD secretariat estimates and calculates unit value indexes at the country level using the current yearâ€™s trade values as weights. For economies for which UNCTAD does not publish data, the import volume indexes (lines 73) in the IMFs International Financial Statistics are used.
