Author(s): The Economist
For more than 25 years, Pocket World in Figures has been the indispensable handbook on the state of the world, covering demographics, industry, politics, geography, culture and more. Where else would you find out, in a single volume, that Zambia is the most entrepreneurial country on earth, that Qatar uses the most energy per head of population, and the Virgin Islands has the fourth highest murder rate of any region in the world? The new edition includes data from over 180 countries, presented in a series of rankings and country profiles. Updated, revised and expanded each year to include new rankings and features, it also includes detailed statistical profiles of more than 65 of the world's major economies, the euro area and the world itself. And, once again, the 2020 edition will showcase the Economist's strength in data journalism by including charts and graphs, and will invite readers to test their knowledge with its world rankings quiz.
