Dashboards on Trade, Travel and Transport

The COVID-19 pandemic has a major impact on the economy, especially on trade, travel and transport. International agencies led by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) are collaborating to provide policy relevant high-frequency indicators for international trade, air travel and maritime transport. Because timeliness and frequency are essential to inform policy makers and society in a rapidly changing economic situation, the data shown in the dashboards below are more of an experimental nature. They are not official statistics, unless otherwise indicated. For all of the dashboards, the methodology for arriving at the estimates are available and can be further tested. The data should be used with caution. We encourage users of the data to give us feedback, which can be sent to [email protected] under the subject heading: Dashboards for trade, travel and transport.
