Foreword

The Economic Survey of Latin America and the Caribbean, 1998-1999 is the fifty-first edition in this series and incorporates a number of innovations, including new graphics and the use of a CD-ROM format for the statistical appendix. A new methodology has also been used in the preparation of the country studies (Parts Two and Three). This methodology is based on national accounts statistics denominated in the local currency and uses the base year employed by the relevant country, rather than figures in United States dollars. The statistical information used in the chapters on regional issues (Part One) is denominated in dollars, as in previous years, and 1995 is used as the base year for the calculations at constant prices.
