The Regional Statistical Yearbooks, which began circulating in the early nineties, can now be considered the statistical publication of reference on a regional and municipal level. The thematic content of this year’s edition follows the last edition, being organised in 26 sub chapters grouped into four main chapters — The Territory, The People, The Economic Activity and The State. It includes a new sub-chapter in The Economic Activity domain: “Services Provided to Enterprises”. Each sub-chapter starts with a key indicators table, which enables the reader to see, at a glance, the main territorial trends relating to the different topics. Data tables continue to appear in a bilingual format (Portuguese and English).
