OECD Factbook 2015

Economic, Environmental and Social Statistics

By Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development OECD

OECD Factbook 2015 is a comprehensive annual statistical publication. More than 100 indicators cover a wide range of areas: agriculture, economic production, education, energy, environment, foreign aid, health, industry, information and communications, international trade, labor force, population, taxation, public expenditure, and R&D.

Data are provided for all OECD member countries (including area totals) and, when available and considered internationally comparable, for Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, the Russian Federation, and South Africa. Each indicator is given a two-page spread: the first page includes a short introduction followed by a detailed definition of the indicator, comments on comparability of the data, an assessment of long-term trends related to the indicator, and a list of references for further information on the indicator. The second page contains a table and a graph providing, at a glance, the key message conveyed by the data. Each indicator includes StatLinks, which allow readers to download the corresponding data.
