OECD Factbook 2008 is the fourth edition of a comprehensive and dynamic statistical annual from the OECD.  More than 100 indicators cover a wide range of areas: economy, agriculture, education, energy, environment, foreign aid, health and quality of life, industry, information and communications, population/labour force, trade and investment, taxation, public expenditure and R&D. This year, the OECD Factbook features a focus chapter on productivity. Data are provided for all OECD member countries with area totals, and in some cases, for selected non-member economies.

For each indicator, there is a two-page spread.  A text 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 next page contains a table and a graph providing - at a glance - the key message conveyed by the data.  A dynamic link (StatLink) is provided for each table directing the user to a web page where the corresponding data are available in Excel® format.
