The Yearbook series is a result of collaborative 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 harmonized database. It seeks to promote wider use of country data, reduce costs, significantly improve the availability and quality of the data, and lead to better monitoring of development initiatives on the continent. The data in this issue of the Yearbook are arranged generally for the years 2004-2012, or for the last eight years for which data are available. It is published in a single volume consisting of two parts: a set of summary tables followed by country profiles.

The labor market in Africa

The African Statistical Yearbook is produced annually by the three pan-African institutions: the African Development Bank (AfDB), the African Union Commission (AUC), and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA). Each year it adopts a new strategic focus of specific importance to the continent and this year’s theme is the relationship between the labor market and economic and social development, as this affects Africa’s future growth. It is envisioned that this analysis will bolster the case for accelerated policies and interventions to remedy the un employment situation and strengthen political will for the fight against poverty.
