UN COMTRADE is the name for the United Nations Commodity Trade Statistics Database. The database contains annual international trade statistics from over 170 countries, detailed by commodities and partner countries. Currently the database contains over 3.1 billion data records starting from 1962. The API allows users to query the database filtering on parameters including Commodity Classification, Reporter, Year, Commodity Code, Partner Country and Trade Flow. The API uses RESTful calls and responses are formatted in XML and SDMX.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically,
once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change.
As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset,
we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all
activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb.
If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way,
the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
