OECD Factbook 2009

Economic, Environmental and Social Statistics

OECD Factbook 2009 is the fifth edition of a comprehensive and dynamic statistical annual from the OECD.  More than 100 indicators cover a wide range of areas: economy, agriculture, education, energy, environment, foreign aid, health and quality of life, industry, information and communications, population/labour force, trade and investment, taxation, public expenditure and R&D. This year, the OECD Factbook features a focus chapter on inequality. Data are provided for all OECD member countries with area totals, and in some cases, for selected non-member economies.

For each indicator, there is a two-page spread.  A text page includes a short introduction followed by a detailed definition of the indicator, comments on comparability of the data, an assessment of long-term trends related to the indicator, and a list of references for further information on the indicator.  The next page contains a table and a graph providing - at a glance - the key message conveyed by the data.  A dynamic link (StatLink) is provided for each table directing the user to a web page where the corresponding data are available in Excel® format.

OECD Factbook 2009 is a key reference tool for everyone working on economic and policy issues.

Hide / Show Abstract

Unemployment rates vary significantly among OECD countries but large international differences hide even larger differences among regions. In 2006, regional differences in unemployment rates were above 10 percentage points in one third of OECD countries.
