Small States

Economic Review and Basic Statistics, Volume 12

This unique annual collection of key economic and statistical data on the world’s small states – those with fewer than five million inhabitants – is an essential reference for economists, planners and policy-makers. The book contains fifty-four tables covering selected economic and social indicators culled from international and national sources and presents information unavailable elsewhere. A detailed parallel commentary on trends in Commonwealth small states, looking at growth, employment, inflation and economic policy issues, permits a deeper understanding of developments behind the figures.

The book also includes two topical articles, on the dynamics of growth and macroeconomic fluctuations of small states, by Dr Gordon Cordina of the University of Malta, and the crucial role of energy efficiency and renewable energy in small island developing states, by David Barrett.

This is the twelfth issue of this annual publication, which was previously published under the title Basic Statistical Data on Selected Countries (with populations of less than 5 million). It is intended as an essential reference tool for economists and policy-makers in small states and for their development partners. It also provides a useful resource for analysts from research and academic institutions, and is a unique source of information on small states.
