About the product
The UNCTAD Handbook of Statistics 2006-2007 on DVD provides a comprehensive collection of statistical data relevant to the analysis of international trade, investment and development, for individual countries and for economic and trade groupings. The DVD presents reference statistics considered of particular importance for describing, in the context of globalization, how developing countries have evolved in recent decades. The time series cover periods that are as long as figures obtainable permit (going back to 1950 when data are available). A user-friendly data browser allows users to sort data and to simultaneously view, for example, values and percentages, thus enabling quicker reference and improved analytical insight. It is also easy to perform calculations, aggregate figures and extract and export data, as well as to create different charts.
