20.59.    Examples are presented below for the United States and New Zealand.  However, as presented in the present Guide, other national agencies have engaged in the publication of monetary data broken down by mode of supply, including Reserve Bank of India and the International Legal Services Advisory Council of Australia. In addition, reports combining indicators from various sources are published by some agencies in charge of analysing the international supply of services, such as the International Trade Commission of the United States or  Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Australia. Readers are advised to refer to those reports for examples of the dissemination of data on the international supply of services.

[1] Concerning FATS data, as long as they are provided only on an activity basis, it will most probably be difficult to present a breakdown of sales or output by product using EBOPS 2010 or ISIC Categories for Foreign Affiliates in services, revision 1 (ICFA rev.1) as suggested in MSITS 2010, chapter V. However, it is important to keep in mind that MSITS 2010 suggests as a long-term goal to develop statistics on sales/output of services by product, using a classification compatible with EBOPS, if possible. An interim solution is to break down output (or sales) for each activity between total services and total goods, the former being of interest in the context of the international supply of services.

[2] For a proper estimation of mode 3, one should identify output or sales of services to residents of the country of establishment of those affiliates.

[3] A description of the services sector in terms of the Central Product Classification (CPC) could be useful in order to clarify the scope of the service under consideration, which is broken down by modes.
