About the book

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 Ukraine is the most equal country on earth, that Tajikistan has the world's highest divorce rate or that Monaco, uniquely, has more telephone landlines than people?

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 2019 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.
