5. Enhancement of standard unification continues. In this year, great efforts have been made to give unified regulations toward data related to statistical grouping in this Yearbook. For example, in statistical tables with the three industries and sectors classified by cross-grouping, the data was uniformly adjusted to be classified by “industries, national economic sectors and key sectors”; data classified by central and regional government was uniformly adjusted to be grouped by “affiliation”; and data classified by domestic and foreign enterprises was uniformly adjusted to be grouped by “registration type”. Besides, regulations are continuouly made toward consistency and accuracy of Brief Introduction, Explanatory Notes on Statistical Indicators, notes under the table as well as english translation, etc.
