About the product

The 2016 edition of the State of Commodity Dependence contains 135 individual country profiles, each comprising 40 indicators mostly related to the three main dimensions of commodity dependence, namely: export commodity dependence, import commodity dependence and net merchandise and commodity trade. Moreover, as commodity dependence tends to negatively affect poverty alleviation and food security, a set of indicators is included to help monitor trends in this area in developing countries. For each individual country, 2009/10 is used as the reference period. Graphs and diagrams are presented at the beginning of each regional chapter in order to highlight the position of individual countries within their respective regions.
