Abstract:

Designed to answer questions about the makeup, purpose, use and availability of economic indicators in a broad sense of the term, this book includes entries on 284 indicators, 137 of which are new to this edition. In addition to identifying and describing indicators, the entries show how they are calculated, where they are published, and where one can find further information about them. Covering those indicators that are readily available through publication in newspapers and journals, on the World Wide Web, in library collections, or in government publications, the book will guide the researcher and librarian to current and historical vales of these indicators and answer questions about their structure, function and calculation.

Arranged in dictionary format with extensive cross-references and indexing, the book is easy to use. Appendixes provide additional information on the authors and publishers of the indicators and their values as well as an extensive reading list on the subject. A final appendix identifies and defines tongue-in-cheek indicators that are frequently mentioned by professionals and in the press.
