About the book
The UNCTAD Handbook of Statistics CD-ROM provides a comprehensive collection of statistical data relevant to the analysis of world trade, investment and development. This CD-ROM contains exclusive data relating to trade and development, some of which dates back to 1950. The statistics cover the following categories: value, growth and shares of total exports and imports; trade and commodity price indices; structure of world trade; international finance; and selected indicators of development. The 2002 version of the UNCTAD Handbook of Statistics CD-ROM offers users two new chapters or categories. Figures on trade in services now form a separate category (V) and include a new table on travel services indicators. The category special studies (VIII) contains several sets of data published in the Handbook for the first time in order to further enhance the analytical value of the publication. The UNCTAD Handbook of Statistics CD-ROM permits user-friendly data search and selection, table layout and data export.
