Key Indicators for Asia and the Pacific 2023

The report covers the 49 regional members of ADB. It discusses trends in development progress and the challenges to achieving inclusive and sustainable economic growth across Asia and the Pacific. This 54th edition of Key Indicators examines how the increased cost-of-living crisis combined with the lingering impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are pushing millions of people in Asia and the Pacific deeper into poverty. The report identifies the need for more galvanized efforts to ensure poor people are able to cope with inflationary pressures and ongoing economic uncertainties.

It measures participation in value chains involving multiple cross-border transaction of inputs used in different stages of production expressed in constant (base year 2010) prices.

Part IV. Stories Behind the Data: Using Price Data and Statistics to Track Socioeconomic Development [click to expand]

This chapter highlights the vital role of timely and reliable temporal and spatial price statistics. It presents the crucial role of national statistical systems (NSSs) in compiling policy-essential price indices such as consumer price index, which track price changes over time. The chapter also underscores the significant contributions of the NSSs in the International Comparison Program (ICP) which produces purchasing power parities, which are spatial price indices free from price level differences used to express gross domestic expenditure aggregates using a common currency across economies.

Statistics by Economy

These tables for the 49 regional ADB member economies contain information about a wide range of statistical indicators on population, labor force, national accounts, production and price indexes, energy, money and interest rates, government finance, external trade, balance of payments, international reserves, exchange rates, and external indebtedness.
