African Statistical Yearbook 2018
The African Statistical Yearbook (ASYB) 2018 is the tenth edition jointly produced by the African Development Bank (AfDB), the African Union Commission (AUC) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA). It is a result of the fruitful collaboration that exists among the three pan-African organizations within the field of statistics. This synergistic collaboration has two principal benefits: it minimizes the risk of inconsistent information being produced by the three organizations, and it reduces the reporting burden on member states, who might otherwise be obliged to submit data separately to each institution. As with the previous eight editions, this 2018 edition presents a time series showing how African countries performed on several economic and social indicators over the period 2009–2017.
