For more than 25 years, Pocket World in Figures has been informing and entertaining readers around the world with its blend of the serious, the quirky and the downright surprising.

Where else would you find out, in a single volume, that a Big Mac will cost you twice as much in Israel as one in South Africa, that Rwanda, Bolivia and Cuba have the highest proportion of women in parliament or that the US space budget is six times that of its nearest rival, China?

The 2017 edition once again includes data from over 190 countries, presented in a series of rankings and country profiles. As always, the rankings will cover subjects as diverse as geography and demographics, business, economics and finance and society and culture. But this time, the book will also showcase the Economist's strength in data journalism by including a series of charts and graphs to supplement the rankings.

The new edition will also include a series of quiz questions designed to make the book an even more indispensable guide for anyone who wants to be well-informed about the world around them.
