Forest product conversion factors
Forest product conversion factors provides, for 37 countries around the world, ratios of raw-material input to output for eight categories of wood-based forest products. Analysts, policymakers, forest practitioners and forest-based manufacturers often need these conversion factors to understand sectoral drivers of efficiency, feasibility and economics. In addition, such factors are used for conversions from one unit of measure to another. The publication includes explanations of the units of measure and determinants of the ratios, as well as information on some of the physical properties of wood-based forest products. Finally, where reported factors are unavailable, factors from other sources are given.
