United States Statistics on Trade in Services, by Obie
Presented at August 14-17, 2000 APEC Seminar of Statistical Reporting
on Services Trade, Tianjin, China.
This paper describes the U.S. data collection system for trade in services,
discusses improvements that have been made in it over roughly the last
15 years, and identifies some of the improvement tasks that remain. The
discussion covers both data on trade in the conventional sense of exchanges
between residents and nonresidents and data on services delivered through
locally established affiliates.
