The most recent Statistical Yearbook of Portugal (SYB) is now available, a compendium of official statistics published on a regular basis, the key reference document for all those who seek to have a comprehensive statistical portrait of the country in various areas of analysis in one single volume.
Through almost 700 pages the 2012 SYB organises national data around four major themes: Territory, People, Economic Activity and State. This publication contains data tables, a brief analysis of trends of the main indicators vis-à-vis 2011, and compares Portugal with the European Union.
The SYB is available at Statistical Portugal’s libraries and Information Network in Libraries of Higher Education Establishments and in around 1,200 libraries in primary and secondary schools. The online version of the SYB (at www.ine.pt
), which may be consulted and downloaded free of charge, includes longer time series (1990-2012) than the printed version.
