African Statistics Pocketbook 2011
The 2011 ECA Statistics Pocketbook is the first volume of this publication produced by the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA).
It presents statistical trends for each African country on some key indicators covering three major areas namely Demographic Statistics, Social and Environment Statistics and Economic Statistics. The data in the Economic Statistics Section have been grouped under National Accounts, Production, External sector, Money and Finance and Government statistics. The data has been mainly obtained from 2011 African Statistical Yearbook which presents recent time series on African countries in various areas of statistics. However, wherever available the latest data has been included in the publication.
The data in this pocketbook have been provided for the years 2000, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 or for the latest years for which data are available.
The pocketbook will be an annual publication to be produced by the African Centre for Statistics (ACS) of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa.
