About the product
This book and CD-ROM set provides a comprehensive collection of statistical data relevant to the analysis of international trade, investment and development, for individual countries and for economic and trade groupings. The publication presents consolidated reference statistics considered of particular importance for describing how developing countries have evolved in the context of globalization. Data are presented in an analytical way, through the use of rank orderings, growth rates and other special calculations, in order to facilitate their interpretation. The CD-ROM time series cover periods that are as long as figures obtainable permit (going back to 1950 when data are available).
