UN Comtrade Analytics
15 December 2017
Using the latest trade data available from the UN Comtrade database, the UN Statistics Division (UNSD) created a series of seven different interactive visualizations of trade data. In one visualization, countries’ export and import data are displayed in an interactive world map that is color-coded by trade intensity and also displays trade balances, top trading partners, top traded commodities, and more. The map can be further customized by selecting individual or multiple countries, regions and/or commodities, and time period. Other visualizations include bar charts, tree maps and more.
