Summary: The Atlas still provides an overview of development issues, highlighting key social, economic, and environmental data for 208 economies. But it has been expanded and substantially redesigned, offering more information in a stronger thematic structure. Each topic is presented on two facing pages- illustrated by maps, graphs, and accompanying text to provide a multidimensional introduction. The topics are organized in three sections: 1) Measuring the world-examines population, life expectancy, poverty, world economy, and environment. 2) Measuring development-presents an assessment of progress toward some of the targets of the Millennium Development Goals. 3) Measuring action-comprises 19 detailed presentations on health, education, social welfare, use of environmental resources, performance of the public sector, and integration of the global economy. Drawing on the World Development Indicators 2003 database, the Atlas includes nine tables that provide more information on many of the indicators that appear in the thematic discussions.
