The principles of energy politics within the nuclear age, primary forces that force occasions within the foreign information, and seldom-discussed elements which can shift entire economies, or set off wars, might be discerned from the statistical tables awarded during this novel yearbook. This statistical annual offers primary information in 3 sections: (1) caliber of lifestyles, (2) stability of energy, and (3) constructed industry Economies considering that 1960. It comprises facts that's usually now not to be had somewhere else. Sections 1 and a couple of supply facts for 232 international locations. the area financial institution and Encyclopedia Britannica supply statistical information for a greatest of approximately one hundred sixty nations. the particular variety of international locations in global financial institution statistical tables is even smaller. The CIA international Factbook supplies info for roughly 230 nations yet that facts is proscribed in scope and is obscure. different statistical guides are even much less passable. the writer has controlled to extend the variety of nations tallied by means of writing proprietary software program using statistical regressions, deciding on info which, to start with, is critical and, moment, which permits for top correlation coefficients for those regressions. part 2 contains info approximately nuclear supply structures and the variety of nuclear warheads of all nuclear powers. this is often in line with info from respected assets. between others, it contains estimates of the Israeli nuclear arsenal which typically don't look within the press. legitimate estimates of Russian army charges disbursed via US and British intelligence groups are methodologically mistaken.
