This 2008 edition of The Economist Pocket World in Figures includes new rankings on such things as such things as contraception use, populations over 80, increases in commodity prices and house prices, brain drains, maritime traders, children's well-being, murders, executions and several environmental measures. The world rankings consider 183 countries; all those with a population of at least 1m or a GDP of at least $1bn; they are listed on pages 248–52. The country profiles cover 67 major countries. Also included are profiles of the euro area and the world. The extent and quality of the statistics available varies from country to country. Every care has been taken to specify the broad definitions on which the data are based and to indicate cases where data quality or technical difficulties are such that interpretation of the figures is likely to be seriously affected. Nevertheless, figures from individual countries may differ from standard international statistical definitions. The term “country” can also refer to territories or economic entities.
