Preface

The International Recommendations for Distributive Trade Statistics 2008 (IRDTS 2008) were prepared in accordance with the decision of the United Nations Statistical Commission taken at its thirty-seventh session, New York, 7-10 March 2006. In that decision, the Commission endorsed the United Nations Statistics Division initiative to revise the existing recommendations in the area of distributive trade statistics and advised that the revision should fully reflect the specific needs and circumstances of various groups of countries and particularly the needs of countries with a substantial informal sector.
