About the product
The 2004 edition of the Statistical Yearbook for Latin America and the Caribbean contains a selection of the main statistical series available on economic and social trends in the countries of the region. It represents an effort by the ECLAC Statistics and Economic Projections Division to harmonize the figures and make them internationally comparable. Beginning with the 2002 edition, the Yearbook is also being made available on CD-ROM. To facilitate the analysis of the information, this version includes statistical tables (in Excel) covering the entire series from 1980 on. This is a bilingual publication, in English and Spanish.
