The Key Indicators for Asia and the Pacific 2019, the 50th edition of this series, presents the latest statistics on a comprehensive set of economic, financial, social, environmental, and SDG indicators for the 49 regional members of the Asian Development Bank (ADB). It is designed to serve as a resource for information on development issues across the region for a wide audience, including policy makers, development practitioners, government officials, researchers, students, and the general public. The new Key Indicators Database allows interactivity with the data in a user-friendly manner. The database’s advanced functionality includes a categorized search facility for data, various download options, and customized data visualization.

This year’s Key Indicators publication is accompanied by a special supplement focusing on The CAPI Effect: Boosting Survey Data through Mobile Technology. It discusses the role computer-assisted personal interviewing (CAPI) can play in transforming survey data collection to allow better monitoring of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The Regional Trends and Tables are grouped into eight themes, People; Economy and Output; Money, Finance, and Prices; Globalization; Transport and Communications; Energy and Electricity; Environment; and Government and Governance. Each has a brief analysis of key trends of selected indicators highlighting important recent developments in Asia and the Pacific.

Part III. Global Value Chains [click to expand]

Select indicators depict Asia and the Pacific economies’ participation in global value chains (GVCs), and their sector-specific comparative advantage in terms of exports. Participation in GVCs involves cross-border trading transactions of inputs used in different stages of production—from raw materials, to intermediate inputs, up to the final products purchased by the end consumers.

Country Tables

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