This publication presents data for the 58 ESCAP member countries, as well as world, regional, sub-regional and economic aggregates for comparison. It offers current trends and emerging topics in the Asia-Pacific region, grouped around the themes of people, the environment, the economy and connectivity. It provides the international and regional community with key indicators, objective analyses of the current trends and emerging issues, along with data and charts. In order to maximize the comparability, the data is sourced exclusively from international agencies that adhere to the official global statistical standards.




In 2013, Asia and the Pacific maintained its employment-to-population ratio of 61% which is roughly in line with that of Latin American and the Caribbean at slightly over 62% and that of Africa at 60.5%. Asia-Pacific’s employment rate slightly exceeds the global average of 59.7%. However, the difference between female and male employment-to-population ratios is still significant, with the former at 47% and the latter at 75%.
