This unique annual collection of key economic and statistical data on states with fewer than five million inhabitants is an essential reference for economists, planners and policy-makers. The Commonwealth’s definition of small states is those with a population of one and a half million or less. For comparison purposes this volume presents, where available, data on states with a population of up to five million.

This volume contains 17 tables covering development indicators and an article focusing on the reform of overseas development assistance (ODA) and Post-2015 financing for development (FFD) in small states.
