In May, 1925, I read before this Society one of a series of short
papers which were then presented on trade statistics and I am glad
to have this opportunity of bringing to your notice some facts which
will indicate that substantial progress has been made since then in
the form of presentation of the Saorstát trade statistics. While it is
undesirable that there should be frequent changes in the method of
compilation, tabulation or presentation of any set of statistics thus
preventing satisfactory comparisons being made, there come times
when a change in method is a necessary step in the stage of development
and improvement of the statistics themselves.
