Small States

Economic Review and Basic Statistics, Volume 12

image of Small States

This unique annual collection of key economic and statistical data on the world’s small states – those with fewer than five million inhabitants – is an essential reference for economists, planners and policy-makers. The book contains fifty-four tables covering selected economic and social indicators culled from international and national sources and presents information unavailable elsewhere. A detailed parallel commentary on trends in Commonwealth small states, looking at growth, employment, inflation and economic policy issues, permits a deeper understanding of developments behind the figures.

The book also includes two topical articles, on the dynamics of growth and macroeconomic fluctuations of small states, by Dr Gordon Cordina of the University of Malta, and the crucial role of energy efficiency and renewable energy in small island developing states, by David Barrett.



Basic Statistics

The set of statistical tables that follows is the twelfth of the annual issue previously published under the title Basic Statistical Data on Selected Countries (with populations of less than 5 million). It brings together 54 tables, setting out basic data on country size together with the latest information on selected economic and social development indicators, as well as characteristics of the major sectors of small economies. It is hoped that these data will form a useful supplement to those available from other sources on larger countries.
