More Information
A unique and comprehensive source of information, the International Yearbook of Industrial Statistics is the only international publication providing economists, planners, policymakers and business people with worldwide statistics on current performance and trends in the manufacturing sector.

Covering more than 120 countries/areas, the 1996 edition of the Yearbook contains data which are internationally comparable and much more detailed in industrial classification than those supplied in previous publications. This is the second issue of the annual publication which succeeds the UNIDO’s Handbook of Industrial Statistics and, at the same time, replaces the United Nation’s Industrial Statistics Yearbook, volume I (General Industrial Statistics). Information has been collected directly from national statistical sources and supplemented with estimates by UNIDO.

The Yearbook is designed to facilitate international comparisons relating to manufacturing activity and industrial performance. It provides data which can be used to analyse patterns of growth, structural change and industrial performance in individual industries. Data on employment trends, wages and other key indicators are also presented. Finally, the detailed information presented here enables the user to study different aspects of industry which was not possible using the aggregate data previously available.
Critical Acclaim
‘This annual publication seems to be the only international publication providing worldwide statistics on current performance and trends in the manufacturing sector. In terms of comprehensiveness, accuracy, and cross-country comparisons this volume is unparalleled . . . If you are looking for an authoritative source for comparative international statistics on industrial information, this is it.’
– Andrea Meyer, Business Information Alert

Acclaim for previous editions:

‘. . . a valuable library resource for industrial planning and international trade: it is a must for anyone interested in comparing industrial output from various areas of the world and in trends for these same products.’
– Herbert W. Ockerman, Libraries Unlimited

‘This is a unique and massive effort by UNIDO providing comparative statistics on current performance and trends in the manufacturing sector worldwide. . . . There is no doubt that the volume is a most important source book for economists, planners and policymakers.’
– Pradosh Nath, Journal of Science and Industrial Research

‘UNIDO has done well to bridge gaps in information noticed so far in industrial statistics worldwide and its companionship and usefulness will be realised by all users of this documentation in governmental, industrial and academic circles, as a must on every working desk. Its reliability is fully backed up by authoritative analysis. The Yearbook has been beautifully published and moderately priced. A highly commendable Yearbook of 1995 industrial statistics.’
– Rajinder Kunmar, Marketing and Management News
