內容簡介


台灣人口總數2340萬,次於澳洲的2400萬;但在國土面積上,澳洲排名世界第六,有774萬1千平方公里,而台灣卻連前70名都排不上。透過這本由《經濟學人》編輯,以數據、圖表展現各種類別的世界排名,讀者便可以有系統、分門別類地理解我們所居的世界。

「資訊豐富、有趣且別具洞見…,對熱愛事實真相的人來說,就是一本聖經。」-《路透社》

「這本書是當今世界的有趣快照,從飲酒到金融,旅行與電視觀看習慣,政治、人口與諾貝爾和平獎得主,它將每件事都拿來做排名。」-《每日鏡報》

過去25年來,Pocket World in Figures一直提供全球讀者許多有趣的訊息,內容包羅萬象,有嚴肅題材,也有怪異或讓人驚奇的各種事實。例如:南美洲最小的國家蘇利南,98%被森林所覆蓋;最貴的大麥克漢堡在瑞士;平均每人花最多錢下載音樂的國家是英國。

這本2018年的版本,涵蓋超過180國的數據,以一連串的排名與國家的基本檔案展現。這些排名,每年都會更新,從地理、人口、商業、經濟、金融、健康與福祉、文化、娛樂,分門別類地在書中一一呈現。《經濟學人》將最拿手的數據新聞學,以圖表呈現各種資訊,並且在最後一部份,以各種排名的益智問答,測試讀者的知識,使得本書成為以數字理解世界所不可或缺又趣味橫生的指南。

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 98% of Suriname is forest, that Switzerland sells the most expensive Big Macs or that the UK spends the most per person on music downloads?

The 2018 edition includes data from over 180 countries, presented in a series of rankings and country profiles. The rankings cover subjects as diverse as geography and demographics, business, economics and finance, health and welfare, culture and entertainment. Updated, revised and expanded each year to include new rankings and features, it also includes detailed statistical profiles of more than 65 of the world's major economies, the euro area and the world itself.

And, once again, the 2018 edition will showcase the Economist's strength in data journalism by including charts and graphs, and will invite readers to test their knowledge with its world rankings quiz, making the book an indispensable - and entertaining - guide to the world in figures.
