The ONS Country Classification provides a key variable for determining a range of social and economic statistics.

It is used to support country of birth; country of residence, destination or origin; country of ownership; and trade and balance of payments data.

Please see National Statistics Country Classification link for more information on this product.

It is maintained by the Classification and Harmonisation Unit (CHU), rather than by us in ONS Geography.
