Statistical yearbook for Latin America and the Caribbean, 2007
Statistics and Economic Projections Division
The 2007 edition of the Statistical Yearbook for Latin America and the Caribbean maintains the modifications in content and design that were introduced in 2005. The objective was to reflect the changes in the demands of researchers who analyse the economic and social situation of the region and to incorporate the technological advances that modify the modes of dissemination and use of statistical information.
The Yearbook is divided into four chapters:
Chapter one covers demographic and social areas, with special attention to gender;
Chapter two presents basic economic information, including production, prices, international trade, balance of payments and national accounts;
Chapter three provides information on natural resources and the environment, in response to increasing regional and international interest in sustainable development;
Chapter four provides readers with methodological and other data on sources, definitions and coverage of the statistics cited.
