About the product

This 2021 edition of the State of Commodity Dependence contains statistical profiles for 195 UNCTAD member States. Comprised of around 30 indicators, it demonstrates the extent of each country’s export and import commodity dependence over the last decade, from 2008–2009 to 2018–2019, as well as the key structural and socioeconomic variables related to the commodity dependence phenomenon, such as growth of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and per capita GDP levels, the Human Development Index (HDI), and value added by economic sector. The report also includes a set of technological indicators for each individual country, thus reflecting the research theme of the UNCTAD Commodities and Development Report 2021: Escaping From the Commodity Dependence Trap Through Technology and Innovation.
