FOREWORD Terms of Reference 1. This review is the seventh in a triennial series beginning with ZCAO Circular 73-ATJ10 published in 1965 and followed by Circular 89-ATJ15 1968, Circular 105-AT 126 19 71 , Circular 122-AT/32 19 74 , Circular 133-bT/40 1977 and Circular 158-/57 1980. Mter examination of the second review, the Sixteenth Session of the Assembly expressed the view that similar documents should be produced for each major Session as background material for the work of the Economic Cdssion, 2. The coverage of this review extends to the whole of the Organization's member- ship of 150 Contracting States as of 31 December 1983 for the period from 1972 to 1982, data for those States which joined ICM after 1968 having been included retroactively where possible. Data for 1982 has been estimated on the basis of partial reporting for that year. Coverage extends ro all activities of the scheduled airlines of Contracting States reported to ICAO for the years 1972 to 1982 and published in the statistical Series on aircraft on register, airline fleet and personnel, airline traffic, and airline financial data. The activities of the non-scheduled operators are covered less fully since data for these carriers, although supplemented from other sources, are somewhat incomplete . Sources of Information 3. In addition to the ICAO Mgests of Statistics use has been made of many of the Organization's economic studies, such as the earlier editions of this review, and the series of regional studies dealing with the development of international air freight and air passenger transport. Use has also been made of the Annual Reports of the Council to the Assembly for the years 1972 to 1982. 4.
