 About DISA

The Database of International Statistical Activities (DISA) lists the activities of over 30 statistical organizations active in the UNECE region. Updated every year, DISA is a coherent catalogue of planned work in international statistics over the coming year.  

• To provide the statistical background needed for policy discussions in the Steel Committee. Statistics are also produced for publications on steelmaking capacity in non-OECD economies.


Objectives and outputs

• A steel statistical report is produced two times a year in order to provide participants of the Steel Committee with a broad range of information on the world steel industry and related raw material markets. These statistics enhance transparency and facilitate discussion by member and non-member economies on challenging policy issues facing the industry. More specifically, the statistical work includes gathering data on steel supply (capacity, production), demand, prices, trade, employment, and trade policy measures, in addition to market data on raw materials used in steelmaking (iron ore, coal, coke, ferrous scrap, and ferroalloys).
