Small States

Economic Review and Basic Statistics, Volume 18

This unique annual collection of key economic and statistical data on states with fewer than five million inhabitants is an essential reference for economists, planners and policy-makers. The Commonwealth’s definition of small states is those with a population of one and a half million or less. For comparison purposes this volume presents, where available, data on states with a population of up to five million.

This volume contains 17 tables covering development indicators and an article focusing on the reform of overseas development assistance (ODA) and Post-2015 financing for development (FFD) in small states.

Hide / Show Abstract

The Commonwealth defines small states as sovereign countries with a population of 1.5 million people or fewer. The Commonwealth also designates some of its larger member countries – Botswana, Jamaica, Lesotho, Namibia and Papua New Guinea – as small states because they share many of the characteristics of small states. Thirty-one of the fifty-three Commonwealth member countries are small states.
