About the product
This year's issue of the Yearbook consists of three chapters. The first chapter provides social statistics on population, labour, education, health, housing and basic services, poverty and income distribution, and gender. The second presents economic statistics and covers national accounts, external sector, prices, and sectoral statistics, in particular, agriculture and mining and manufacturing. Reflecting the growing concern of the regional and international community for sustainable development, the third chapter provides data on natural resources and the environment finalizing with environmental management. The electronic version of the yearbook is available on CD-ROM as well as online through the ECLAC website.
