Hide / Show Abstract

This publication provides users with quality statistical information to enhance Africa’s development initiatives. It aims to break with past practices, whereby each regional/subregional organization published their own statistical data on African countries. It is expected that the joint collection and sharing of data between regional institutions will promote a wider use of country data, reduce costs and significantly improve the quality of the data, leading to better monitoring of development initiatives on the continent. The data contained in this publication are arranged generally for the years 2002 to 2010 or for the last eight years.

  • Acknowledgment

    The 2011 African Statistical Yearbook was prepared under the overall umbrella of the African Statistical Coordination Committee set up by major continental organizations dealing with statistical development namely the African Development Bank (AfDB), the African Capacity Building Foundation (ACBF), the African Union Commission (AUC), and the United Na tions Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) in the framework of the implementation of the Reference Regional Strategic Framework for Statistical Capacity Building in Africa (RRSF).

  • Foreword

    The coordination between the African Development Bank (AfDB), the African Union Commission (AUC), and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA) in the field of statistics continues. The joint production of the annual African Statistical Yearbook (ASYB) is a testimony of the ever-stronger partnerships between the three pan-African organizations. The joint production through a pan-African mechanism gives the ASYB a continental seal of approval. Working together, we check and validate the data to improve the quality and reduce potential inconsistencies that would have resulted from separate go-it-alone products.

  • Introduction (English)

    The Yearbook series, is a result of joint efforts by major African regional organizations to set up a joint data collection mechanism of socioeconomic data on African countries as well as the development of a common harmonized database. The Joint African Statistical Yearbook is meant to break with the practices of the past where each regional/sub-regional organization was publishing statistical data on African countries of the continent in an inefficient way, leading to duplication of efforts, inefficient use of scarce resources, increased burden on countries and sending different signals to users involved in tracking development efforts on the continent. It is expected that the joint collection and sharing of data between regional institutions will promote wider use of country data, reduce costs and significantly improve the quality of the data and lead to better monitoring of development initiatives on the continent.

  • General notes

    The statistics presented in the Yearbook are, as far as possible in accordance with international recommendations and definitions. Where important deviations are known to exist, they are indicated in footnotes at the end of each country’s table. Owing to the rounding of figures, the totals shown in tables do not always correspond exactly to the sum of their component items.
