Key Indicators for Asia and the Pacific 2017

Published by: ADB

The Key Indicators for Asia and the Pacific 2017 (Key Indicators 2017), the 48th edition of this series, provides statistics on a comprehensive set of economic, financial, social, environmental, and Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicators for the 48 regional members of the Asian Development Bank (ADB). As the data in this publication demonstrates, Asia and the Pacific’s development continues to be impressive on many fronts. Between 2002 and 2013, approximately 707 million people in the region moved out of extreme poverty, based on the $1.90 a day poverty line. The region’s share of global GDP increased from 29% to 41%, in terms of purchasing power parity, between 2000 and 2016. Energy efficiency, measured as GDP per unit of energy use, improved 1.5% annually between 2000 and 2014. And the maternal mortality ratio was halved between 2000 and 2015. As statistics on participation in global value chains show, the region has cushioned the impact of the slowdown in global trade observed since 2011 by increasing the domestic content of its exports and relying more on domestic absorption as a driver of growth.
