Contents >> Chapter 6. Data Confidentiality >> Special aggregate data releases

6.39 It is sometimes possible to release temporal aggregates of confidential monthly data without infringing trader's rights to confidentiality. This is achieved by aggregating monthly data to a quarterly, six monthly or annual basis. Statistics on exports of mineral sands and uncut diamonds are currently released on this basis. Some statistics may be able to be released after an agreed period has elapsed. Quarterly details of exports of raw sugar cane in bulk are currently released after a six month period has elapsed.

6.40 Users of international merchandise trade statistics, who are interested in pursuing the availability of special aggregate data releases for other confidential commodities, are required to pay for the cost of investigation, regardless of the outcome.
