    This document is the tenth edition of the World Statistical Compendium. The first issue was published in 1980 and substantially revised and updated in 1983, 1986, 1989, 1992, 1994, 1996, 1998 and 2001. The present edition, prepared in response to the ever growing demand for coherent statistical data in the hides, skins and derived products sector, contains up-dated figures up to 2002. Country series have been revised in cases where new information has become available. An integrated approa ch used in the previous compendia has been adopted. The compendium contains results of statistical analysis of some 180 countries linking stages of processing from the raw hide to the finished product stage. The methodological approach adopted is described in more detail in the 1986 edition. The detailed statistical data on production, utilization and trade of hides and skins, leather and leather footwear are preceded by eleven summary tables and brief analytical notes highlighting the s alient features and changes which have taken place in the hides and skins and leather sector. Despite progress in enhancing the coherence and comparability of the data presented, shortcomings still exist. It is to be hoped that the work undertaken by the FAO Sub-Group on Hides and Skins will further advance progress in eliminating existing statistical deficiencies.

    World Statistical Compendium for Raw Hides and Skins, Leather and Leather Footwear 1999-2015 2016

    At its 54th Session, the Committee on Commodity Problems (CCP) requested the Intergovernmental Group on Meat to consider including hides and skins in its mandate, following which the Intergovernmental Group recommended the establishment of the Sub-Group on Hides and Skins in February 1985 and the CCP endorsed this proposal at its 55th Session in October 1985. In order to be able to service ad-hoc meetings and to facilitate discussions of hides and skins problems in the CCP, FAO began to improve its statistical base and to analyze world market developments for hides and skins in the late sixties. This had led to the development of the only existing worldwide data base which relates the various processing stages to each other and permits inter-country comparisons on a global level. Numerous analytical and problem-oriented papers have also been prepared and to the degree feasible policy conclusions have been drawn. Finally, FAO has provided technical assistance in the field of hides, sk ins and leather for some four decades. It has played an important role in hides and skins preservation and improvement programmes in a large number of developing countries.
