For more information, see About the statistics. Import figures on commodity number 2403.9990 and 2403.9991 in the period 2005-2013 is wrong, read more about corrected figures Statistics for years are published for the first time in January of the following year (t + 1). The figures are then revised twice: for the first time in May of the following year (year t + 1), before final figures are published in May one year later (year t + 2). 12 February 2022 all the commodity codes were changed. The 8-digit commodity codes now have an addition that shows the year when each code was first used. The data material in the External trade in goods statistics is very extensive, and at the most detailed level the quality can vary. The quality will be affected by errors in reported data. Users of the statistics must take this into account when using detailed figures. Commodity numbers with little trade, measured in value, will be more prone to errors than commodity numbers with a lot of trade. Furthermore, the statistical variables weight and quantity have poorer quality than value. Goods with restrictions and trade to particular countries are, however, monitored more closely.
Statistics Norway is required to report detailed figures to Eurostat, and therefore finds it appropriate that the figures are also published to Norwegian users, despite the varying quality.
