Overview

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 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 of 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.
