"This edition of World Tables provides historical time series for individual countries in absolute numbers for most of the basic economic variables. It also includes derived economic indicators for periods of years and social indicators for selected years in a form suitable for making comparisons among countries and country groups."
"The data are organized into four series of tables:
In Series I there is a single table for each country; each table includes historical data series in absolute values for population, items of national accounts, and prices.
In Series II there is a single table for each of the developing countries; each table includes historical data in absolute values for items of balance of payments, external public debt, and central government finances. In addition there are derived indicators such as growth rates, shares, and ratios suitable for making comparisons among countries for the periods 1950-60, 1960-70, and 1970-77.
Each table in Series III and IV covers a number of related economic, demographic, or social topics for individual countries and country groups." (Text from The World Bank Group)
