    Description

    The quality of data concerning international hardwood products trade declined in the 1980s because of several problems associated with the collection and processing of individual export transaction records. This note examines the source, impact, and remedies for data problems caused by data screening procedures, nonreporting, recording errors, and alternative accounting systems. Although this study focuses on the hardwood products, many of the problems discussed affect trade data for other forest products.
