Publication: African Development Indicators 1994-95
This volume, which is the third in a series that began with African Economic and Financial Data (World Bank and UNDP) in 1989, followed by the first African Development Indicators in 1992, presents data from 53 African countries, arranged in 255 separate tables or matrices for more that 300 development indicators. In addition, 25 charts facilitate data interpretation and cross-country comparison. The indicators are grouped into 15 chapters: background data, national accounts, prices and exchange rates, money and banking, the external sector, external debt and related flows, government finance, agriculture, industry, labor force and employment, public enterprises, aid flows, social indicators, environmental indicators, and household welfare indicators. Each chapter includes a brief introduction on the nature of the data and their limitations followed by technical notes that define the indicators and identify specific sources. Most of the indicators present data by year for the period 1980-93. Many indicators also include averages or average growth rates for three recent time periods, covering the years 1975-93 or the most recently available year. Considerable effort has been made to standardize the data to facilitate cross-country comparisons.
