Small States

Economic Review and Basic Statistics, Volume 17

image of Small States

This unique annual collection of key economic and statistical data on states with fewer than five million inhabitants is an essential reference for economists, planners and policy-makers. The Commonwealth’s definition of small states is those with a population of one and a half million or less. For comparison purposes this volume presents, where available, data on states with a population of up to five million.

The book contains 65 tables covering selected economic, social, demographic and Millennium Development Goal indicators culled from international and national sources and also presents information unavailable elsewhere. A detailed parallel commentary on trends in Commonwealth small states, looking at growth, employment, inflation, human development, and economic policy, permits a deeper understanding of underlying developments behind the figures.

The book also includes an article focusing on the role of data and statistics for policy making in small states.

Foreword

This is the seventeenth issue of this annual publication, which was previously published under the title Basic Statistical Data on Selected Countries (with populations of less than 5 million). This issue focuses on data and statistical challenges and is intended as an essential reference for key stakeholders and policy-makers in small states and for their development partners. It also provides a useful resource for analysts from research and academic institutions in the broad areas of social, economic and environment policies.
