The scanned copies of Statistical Yearbooks are available in this section back to the first issue from 1948. Over the past 60 years or more, while the Yearbook has remained a consistent reference book for statistical tables produced by international organisations, much has varied in terms of its frequency, contents and style. While the main dimensions of the statistical tables within its pages has remained constant, referring to statistics of countries and areas across time; the number and names of these countries and areas has changed, the types of statistics available at the international level has evolved and grown and so has the frequency at which many of these are measured.
