Launch of the Handbook of Statistics 2019
10 December 2019

Key Issues

The Handbook of Statistics provides a wide range of statistics and indicators relevant to the analysis of international trade, investment and development.

Since the 2017 edition, the Handbook of Statistics has been overhauled entirely to make it shorter and easier to read, and features a wealth of maps, charts, and infographics.

UNCTAD has taken another important step towards modernizing how it disseminates and visualizes its data, by updating the Handbook of Statistics but also by launching e-Handbook of Statistics, an electronic version of its annual survey to complement the traditional PDF version.
