Comparing the Real Size of Africa Economies – Highlights of the Main Findings of the 2011 Round of the International Comparison Program in Africa


The Statistics Department of the African Development Bank (AfDB) is pleased to present Highlights of the 2011 round of the International Comparison Program (ICP). The 2011 round is the third large-scale international price and volume comparison for Africa executed under the leadership of the AfDB. The first round of the ICP was carried out in 2005, and this was followed by an interim comparison of Household Consumption Expenditure in 2009. In all these rounds, the AfDB worked closely with its Regional Member Countries and with the subregional organizations AFRISTAT, COMESA, ECOWAS, and SADC, which provided invaluable assistance in coordinating the activities within their member countries.
