Description

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.
This year’s issue of the Yearbook is made up of four
chapters. The first covers demographic and social indicators,
which attest to the special effort made to incorporate the
gender dimension in statistical information. The second
chapter presents basic economic, trade and balance-ofpayments
statistics as well as national accounts. Reflecting
the growing concern of the regional and international
community for sustainable development, the third chapter
provides available information on the environment and
natural resources.
Given the abundance of different and, at times,
contradictory data now accessible to researchers through
the Internet, special attention must be paid to the technical
specifications relating to the source of the data as well as
their definition and coverage. This information is presented
in the fourth chapter, which deals with methodology and
metadata.
