The following is a criticism of Mr. Hooper's recent report on the trade of the Irish Free State during the year 1924. I shall have to excuse myself by mentioning that this paper is written at the request of our worthy President as a contribution for discussion on the subject of Irish Trade Statistics for to-day's meeting of the Statistical Society. As I happen to have had an intimate knowledge of the compilation of Trade Statistics in Ireland during the past twenty years and have made a study of the Trade Statistics of other countries, I may be permitted, I hope, to digress now and then from a close criticism of the Report in order to refer to general aspects of Trade Statistics, especially with reference to the subjects of compilation and of international comparisons.
