The underlying principles of the classification

22. In the study of economic phenomena, taking all elements into account simultaneously is not always possible. For the purposes of analysis, certain elements need to be chosen and grouped according to particular characteristics. Thus, all economic phenomena that are to be described in the form of statistics require systematic classification. Classifications are, so to speak, the system of languages used in communication about, and statistical processing of, the phenomena concerned. They divide the universe of statistical data into categories that are as homogeneous as possible with respect to those characteristics that are the objects of the statistics in question.
