image of African statistical yearbook 2014
The Yearbook series is a result of collaborative 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 harmonized database. It seeks to promote wider use of country data, reduce costs, significantly improve the availability and quality of the data, and lead to better monitoring of development initiatives on the continent. The data in this issue of the Yearbook are arranged generally for the years 2005-2013, or for the last eight years for which data are available. It is published in a single volume consisting of two parts: a set of summary tables followed by country profiles.

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.
