2013 Survey - Questionnaire on national agriculture and food product classifications

This survey was carried out with the aim to assess countries’ practices and the extent to which international standards are implemented, in particular to the Central Product Classification (CPC) of the United Nations; to understand how classifications are stored, maintained and disseminated; and to identify country needs on technical assistance.


This project ran from 2007 to 2017. CountrySTAT is a web-based information system for food and agriculture statistics at regional, national and subnational levels aimed at improving access to food and agricultural statistics, to support data analysis and evidence-based decision making  and facilitate informed policy making and monitoring with the goal of eradicating extreme poverty and hunger.
