Presented in Spanish and English, this resource brings together statistical information on the economic and social characteristics of Latin America. Information is presented in tables accompanied by technical notes and includes demographic and social indicators on population, labor, education, health, housing, poverty and income, and gender; basic economic, trade, and balance-of-payments statistics as well as national accounts by country; environment and natural resources information such as land use, forests, energy, and transport; and methodology and metadata. A CD-ROM of the book is included, which has more tables, with more details on each country's economic and social situation, and a greater number of years than the print version, which provides information from a regional perspective with emphasis on international comparability of the data and progress made by countries toward Millennium Development Goals.
