  • Foreword
    The African Statistical Yearbook (ASYB) 2013 is the fifth edition jointly produced by the African Development Bank (AfDB), the African Union Commission (AUC), and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA). It is a result of the fruitful collaboration that exists among the three pan-African organizations within the field of statistics. This synergistic collaboration has two principal benefits: (1) it minimizes the risk of inconsistent information being produced by the three organizations, and (2) it reduces the reporting burden on member states, who might otherwise be obliged to submit data separately to each institution.
  • African statistical yearbook 2013 : Introduction
    The Yearbook series, is a result of joint efforts by major African regional organizations to set up a joint data collection mechanism of socioeconomic data on African countries as well as the development of a common harmonized database. The Joint African Statistical Yearbook is meant to break with the practices of the past where each regional/sub-regional organization was publishing statistical data on African countries of the continent in an inefficient way, leading to duplication of efforts, inefficient use of scarce resources, increased burden on countries and sending different signals to users involved in tracking development efforts on the continent. It is expected that the joint collection and sharing of data between regional institutions will promote wider use of country data, reduce costs and significantly improve the quality of the data and lead to better monitoring of development initiatives on the continent.

  • General notes
    The statistics presented in the Yearbook are, as far as possible in accordance with international recommendations and definitions. Where important deviations are known to exist, they are indicated in footnotes at the end of each country’s table. Owing to the rounding of figures, the totals shown in tables do not always correspond exactly to the sum of their component items.
  • The labor market in Africa
    The African Statistical Yearbook is produced annually by the three pan-African institutions: the African Development Bank (AfDB), the African Union Commission (AUC), and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA). Each year it adopts a new strategic focus of specific importance to the continent and this year’s theme is the relationship between the labor market and economic and social development, as this affects Africa’s future growth. It is envisioned that this analysis will bolster the case for accelerated policies and interventions to remedy the un employment situation and strengthen political will for the fight against poverty.
