The 2013 MDG Report has been written against the backdrop of continued rapid economic growth in Africa, uprisings and transitions in North Africa, the festering sovereign debt crisis in the eurozone, the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), and the beginning of consultations on the post-2015 development agenda.
Since November 2005, the Bank publishes bi-annually The African Statistical Journal which is intended to foster improved communication and contact among analysts, policy makers and data producers in Africa. It is established also to serve as a research outlet and information sharing publication among academic and practicing statisticians mainly in Africa. The Journal aims to promote the understanding of statistical development in the African region.
The AfDB Statistics Pocketbook, presents summary economic and social data on regional member countries and on the operational activities of the African Development Bank Group. Most of the indicators shown are selected from an other Bank publication: Compendium of Statistics on Bank Group Operations, Gender, Poverty and Environmental Indicators on African Countries.
