About the product
The UNCTAD Handbook of Statistics 2008 on DVD 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 DVD presents reference statistics considered of particular importance for describing, in the context of globalization, how developing countries have evolved in recent decades. The time series cover periods that are as long as figures obtainable permit (going back to 1950 when data are available). The Handbook is a valuable tool for research, policy making and education and can also be used in conjunction with the printed or the online version.
