With its comprehensive coverage of political and security matters, human rights issues, economic and social questions, legal issues, and institutional, administrative and budgetary matters, the Yearbook of the United Nations stands as the most authoritative reference work on the activities and concerns of the Organization. Fully indexed, the Yearbook includes the texts of all major General Assembly, Security Council and Economic and Social Council resolutions and decisions, putting all of these in a narrative context of United Nations consideration, decision and action.




The United Nations continued in 2010 its work on various aspects of statistics, mainly through the Statistical Commission and the United Nations Statistics Division. In February, the Commission endorsed the technical content and strategic directions of a global strategy to improve agricultural statistics; adopted a workplan for obtaining international merchandise trade statistics; adopted a manual on statistics of international trade in services; expanded the International Comparison Programme; made plans for dissemination of the System of National Accounts, 2008; and endorsed improvements and initiatives in producing data on and monitoring the Millennium Development Goals.
