Summary: This statistical handbook, the fifth in the series, represents a major compilation of data on the economics of the 15 independent states of the former Soviet Union -Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. Beginning with the 1993 edition, the data has been supplied primarily by the national statistical agencies of the countries of the former Soviet Union based on a standard set of tables provided by the Bank. These tables include population and labor force statistics, national accounts and foreign trade data, government finance statistics, data on agricultural and industrial production, information on prices and wages, as well as household income and expenditure statistics. The country tables present data mostly in monetary or physical units. For the purpose of cross-country comparison, a set of comparative tables has been included where the data are presented primarily as indices or percentages. Technical notes appended explain the general data sources and methods, and include a glossary of terms. Sources, methodologies, and variations in indicators specific to individual countries are discussed in the country notes that follow the country tables. This is a bilingual English-Russian edition.
