Methodological Notes
The statistics of trade with foreign countries used three approaches, and data capture systems: special-narrower definition, special-expanded definitions and general. The system of special trade-narrow definition includes only regular exports and imports, the special trade-expanded definition besides regular exports and imports also includes both the external and internal processing, and general system besides regular exports and imports, the external and internal processing includes goods in Customs warehouses in free zones and other areas under customs supervision and control. In BiH data on foreign turnover of goods produced by different institutions: Agency for Statistics of BiH Indirect Taxation. The difference in the data of these institutions is present primarily due to the use of different approaches tj.različitog includes statistical and customs procedures. We emphasize that the BiH Statistics Agency uses an expanded definition of special trade as recommended by Eurostat (Statistical Office of the EU). Also, according to the Law on Statistics of BiH Agency for Statistics of Bosnia and Herzegovina is the only producer of official statistics for the country.
