About the product
This annual publication, jointly produced by the African Development Bank, the African Union Commission, and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, is a result of the collaboration that exists among the three pan-African organizations in the field of statistics. This synergistic collaboration has two principal benefits: (1) it minimizes the risk of inconsistent information being produced by the three organizations, and (2) it reduces the reporting burden on Member States, who might otherwise be obliged to submit data separately to each institution. The yearbook brings together, in one volume, data on African countries for policy-makers, researchers and other users. This edition presents a time series showing how African countries performed on several economic and social indicators over the period 2011-2019.
