Statistical Yearbook for Asia and the Pacific 2011

Foreword

I am pleased to present the Statistical Yearbook for Asia and the Pacific 2011, which consists of the present publication and an accompanying online booklet, The region@your fingertips, and database (www.unescap.org/stat/data/). The Yearbook provides decision makers, researchers and the general public with a snapshot of the Asia-Pacific region, including figures on population, education, labour, health and public services, the environment, inequality, plus the state of the economy and the new “global economy” – indicating where people are migrating, trading, travelling, communicating; and other important questions. Data are presented for the 58 regional ESCAP member States, as well as world, regional, subregional and economic aggregates, for comparison. The Yearbook presents current trends and emerging topics in Asia and the Pacific, grouped around the themes of people, the environment, the economy and connectivity. It provides the international and regional community with key indicators, objective analyses of the current trends and emerging issues, along with data and charts. To maximize comparability across countries, subregions and regions, country-level data are sourced from international agencies that produce and compile data following international statistical standards. The statistics presented thus provide evidence for guiding decision makers to develop and monitor national policies that address social, economic and environmental challenges. It is my hope that the Yearbook will also support investors, researchers, executives and other decision makers in the private sector in making informed decisions, and that it will educate the general public and give them information to hold governments and other decision makers accountable. It would not have been possible to produce the Yearbook without the collaboration of a large number of individuals and international organizations. I am particularly pleased to present the Yearbook as the result of a concerted effort by the regional and global offices of a number of entities of the United Nations system. I am confident that the information contained in the Yearbook will support the efforts of development partners and governments to formulate, implement and monitor policies for inclusive, sustainable and resilient societies in Asia and the Pacific.

South and South-West Asia and North and Central Asia have seen more dramatic declines of more than 25% (for South and South-West Asia the figure was 106 in 1995-2000 and 75 in 2005-2010; for North and Central Asia the figure was 37 in 1995-2000 and 28 in 2005-2010). Afghanistan and Nepal were the only two countries in the region with an adolescent fertility rate exceeding 100 in 2005-2010.

Life expectancy
Currently, life expectancy in the Asia-Pacific region is highly variable, with ranges from 48 (Afghanistan) to 86 (Japan) years for women and 47 (Afghanistan) to 79 (Japan) years for men in 2005-2010.

Sex ratios
The child sex ratio, which represents the number of boys per 100 girls, depends on combination of the sex ratio at birth and infant/child mortality rates. In general, more boys are born than girls, yielding a natural sex ratio of 105; however, mortality among boys is generally greater than that of girls, and thus by the age of 20 parity is achieved. In contrast, the child sex ratio in the Asia-Pacific region, 110, is much higher than the natural sex ratio and higher than any other region of the world. In other regions of the world, the sex ratio has remained relatively consistent between 102 and 106, but in Asia and the Pacific it has slowly and steadily risen from 106 in 1990 to 110 in 2010 with high variability across countries. The average for East and North-East Asia, 119, is the highest of all subregions. Turning to the population sex ratio, which represents the number of males per 100 females, the Asian and Pacific average of 104 is considerably higher than other regions of the world, which hover just below 100. It has not changed over the past two decades; however, the increasing child sex ratio in Asia and the Pacific could translate into an increase in the population sex ratio in the upcoming years. Currently, in South-East Asia and the Pacific the figures are generally close to parity, while in North and Central Asia they are lower than 100 in all countries, under 90 in Armenia (where there has been a large decrease over the past two decades) and Georgia, and as low as 86 in the Russian Federation. In South and South-West Asia and East and North-East Asia (the subregions with the highest populations), the sex ratio in 2010 was at 105 and 106, respectively.

Within East and North-East Asia and the Pacific, most countries have high life expectancies (over 70 for both men and women) which are lower for men than women. The situation in SouthEast Asia is somewhat similar, yet with lower figures. In South and South-West Asia the life expectancies are generally lower (many countries below 70 for both men and women) with near parity between men and women. In North and Central Asia, life expectancies range from 69 to 77 for women and 60 to 70 for men.

Population age structure
The demographic changes discussed previously shape population structures. The proportion of children in the total population in the AsiaPacific region has fallen steadily from 33% in 1990 to 25% in 2010. This decline has been greater than that in Latin America and the Caribbean and considerably greater than that in Africa. Significant variations exist within Asia and the Pacific – in 2010, East and North-East Asia and North and Central Asia were both at approximately 19%; while in the Pacific and in South-East Asia the figures are 24% and 27%, respectively. In South and South-West Asia the figure is a fair deal higher at 31%. Country variations exist across Asia and the Pacific, with the highest proportions being in Afghanistan (46%), Timor-Leste (46%), the Solomon Islands (40%), Papua New Guinea (39%) and Vanuatu (38%). The proportion of elderly (aged 65 and above) has been steadily increasing (at a similar rate to

that in Latin America and the Caribbean) going from 5.3% in 1990 to 7.0% in 2010. In Africa the proportion was 3.5% with relatively little change over time. The figures in East and North-East Asia are 9.5%, in North and Central Asia, 10% and in the Pacific, 11%; while in South-East Asia and South and South-West Asia, the figures are 5.6% and 4.9%, respectively. With regard to changes over time, the figure for East and North-East Asia has risen most rapidly. In many of the countries of that subregion and to a certain extent those in others, especially in South-East Asia, population ageing is an increasingly relevant issue.

The challenge of population ageing in Asia and the Pacific
Recent decades have yielded considerable transformations in the population structure in Asia and the Pacific owing to changes in birth and death rates in the region. Projections based on recent trends foretell that issues of population ageing will become increasingly important, with significant and pervasive social, economic and political implications. Hence, planning for the future merits priority consideration of the ageing of societies. The number of older persons (age 65 and above) in the region is estimated to increase threefold, from 420 million in 2010 to almost 1.3 billion by 2050, by which time older persons are expected to constitute almost 25% of the total regional population.1 The estimated 2050 rate is greater than that of Japan in 2010 (23%). Indeed, in Japan, along with China and other countries in East and North-East Asia, one third of the population is expected to be over the age of 60 years by 2050. Many factors related to population ageing present challenges to Governments and other stakeholders across Asia and the Pacific. They heighten the need to empower older persons and promote their rights, so they can increasingly participate in social, economic and political fields. National capacities related to the needs of older persons need enhancement, including health services. Awareness of issues of concern to older persons is critical, such as improving accessibility in the built environment, and tapping into their experience for the benefit of society, via employment and other modes of engagement. Population ageing has a significant gender dimension. The proportion of women increases greatly in the older age groups, especially so among the “oldest of the old”, those aged 80 years and above. Older women are generally more vulnerable to discrimination, abuse, poverty and social isolation than older men. Hence, the impacts of ageing on older women warrant particular attention. Responses to population ageing should account for changing family structures that have left numerous older persons without traditional forms of support. Migration, at both the national and international levels, has contributed to such changes. Governments are consequently under pressure to develop social protection systems to address the income insecurity that many older persons face, especially since only approximately 30% of older persons in Asian and Pacific developing countries receive a pension of some form. Appropriate policies and programmes are required to address (a) the needs of older persons and (b) the societywide ramifications of an ageing population – the requisite socio-economic adjustments to accommodate transition to an ageing society.

In 2010, 43% of the Asia and the Pacific population lived in urban areas, the second lowest urban proportion of a region in the world; however, in the last two decades the Asia-Pacific urban proportion has risen by 29%, more than any other region. Between 2005 and 2010, the urbanized proportion of the world’s population overtook the rural population (rising from 49% in 2005 to 51% in 2010); and the urban population continues to grow (the average annual growth between 2005 and 2010 was 1.9%). As of 2010, Asia and the Pacific is the second least urbanized region of the world, with only 43% of the population living in urban areas; however, it has the second fastest urban population growth rate, at an average of 2.0% per annum (2005-2010). Currently, Africa is the least urbanized region and has the highest urban population growth in the world, at an average annual rate of 3.5% (20052010). Across the Asia-Pacific region, the urban proportion and urban population growth rates vary dramatically.

Within Asia and the Pacific, the Pacific subregion is the most urbanized, with 71% of the population living in cities and towns; however, the urban proportion was already at 71% in 1990. Micronesia (Federated States of ), Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, and Tonga are exceptions, each having less than 25% of their population living in urban areas. In contrast, South and South-West Asia is the least urbanized with only 33% of the population living in urban areas. Exceptions in this subregion are Islamic Republic of Iran and Turkey, where approximately 70% of the population lives in urban areas.

The South-East Asia urban population growth was somewhat slower at 2.2% per year, followed by East and North-East Asia at 2.0% and the Pacific at 1.8%. In North and Central Asia the urban population growth rate has hovered close to zero over the last two decades (0.3% for 2005-2010). In general, countries with the fastest urban population growth rates are also those with the lowest levels of urbanization. All ten of the Asia-Pacific countries with an average annual

urban population growth rate above 3.0% have an urban proportion at or below 40%. In the Asia-Pacific region, rapid economic growth is closely linked with urbanization levels. By and large the more developed countries have relatively high levels of urbanization – for example, Asia-Pacific high income countries have an average urbanized proportion of 75%, while the LDC’s of the region have an average of 27%. Rapid economic development has encouraged rural inhabitants to migrate to urban areas to improve their economic opportunities and access to services. Rural-to-urban migration is also caused by such “push” factors as the inability of households to sustain livelihoods in rural areas for economic reasons, conflicts, natural disasters and environmental changes such as desertification and saltwater intrusion. Other factors in urban growth are population growth and reclassification of rural areas as urban. The population growth rate in Asia and the Pacific is 1.0%, while urban population growth is 2.0%. Hence, assuming that fertility in urban and rural areas is comparable, roughly half of urban population growth comes from rural-tourban migration and reclassification of rural areas as urban; the rest is due to population growth. Part of the urbanization picture in Asia and the Pacific is the growth of mega-cities – cities whose population exceeds 10 million. Of the world’s 21 mega-cities in 2010, 12 are in Asia, including 7 of the largest 10 cities. Although mega-cities are often portrayed as the face of urbanization in Asia and the Pacific, the reality is that most of the region’s urban population lives in secondary cities and small towns. Specifically, as of 2009, 60% of the urban population in continental Asia lived in cities with a population of less than 1 million, while only 21% lived in cities of from 1 to 5 million.1

The share of the foreign population is often seen as an indicator of the openness of a country or region to migration. The countries in the region hosting the largest foreign population are the Russian Federation (12. Likewise. This figure is similar to the 1990 figure.

Data on foreign-born persons or foreign citizens are usually taken from censuses or administrative records (especially in countries with a good vital registration system). there is no standard definition of what constitutes an international migrant. Existing data often indicate only the number of foreign or foreign-born persons in a country. students and others are all lumped together as migrants. Another difficulty in collecting migration statistics is the “irregular” status of many migrants. but may not have the proper documentation to work or reside in the country they entered.

The shares of foreign population in Singapore and Brunei Darussalam increased significantly between 1990 and 2011 – in Singapore from 24% to 39% and in Brunei Darussalam from 29% to 37%. temporary labour migration has become the most prevalent form of international migration from and within the region. Little sex. The legal status of migrants may not always be identified: permanent residents. internationally comparable data sources. China. One way to measure migration is to estimate the foreign population as the number of foreign-born persons or foreign citizens (a foreign citizen is a person living in a country that is different from their country of citizenship) in a given country at one point in time – an estimate of the migrant stock. migrant flows represent migratory activity in a certain year and can also capture short-term movements.

Migrants from Myanmar go mainly to Thailand (the majority through irregular channels because regular channels are difficult and costly). For example. a decrease of approximately 2 million migrants. which distinguishes temporary labour migration from much of the historical migration.

Teachers’ salaries account for a considerable chunk of public education expenditure. The average national primary-level pupil-to-teacher ratios in 2008 ranged from 9:1 (Georgia) to 49:1 (Cambodia). The pupil-to-teacher ratio for Asia and the Pacific only changed slightly between 1999 and 2008 – from 26:1 to 25:1.

In 2008, 96% of the urban population throughout Asia and the Pacific had access to improved water sources. While the percentage of the urban population without access to improved water sources has increased in a few cases (specifically, Armenia, Bangladesh, Cook Islands, Indonesia, Lao People’s Democratic Republic, the Marshall Islands, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan and Papua New Guinea), all other countries have experienced constant or inclining access to improved water sources since 1990. Partly responsible for the declines in urban access to water was rural-to-urban migration that increased competition for the use of available water, especially in burgeoning slum areas. In 2008, only 75% of the urban population in Myanmar had adequate access to improved water, compared with 87% in 1990. Political turmoil as well as the recent natural disasters have driven the decline. Between 1990 and 2008, Afghanistan (based on 1995, 1990 data unavailable), Cambodia, Mongolia and Timor-Leste (based on 2000, 1990 and 1995 data unavailable) exhibited the greatest increase in the percentage with access to improved water in urban areas, with a 66, 29, 16 and 17 percentage point difference, respectively. These three countries have achieved the MDG-7 target of a 50% reduction in the proportion of people without access to improved water in urban areas. Georgia, India, Malaysia,

Sri Lanka, Thailand, Turkey, Tuvalu, Vanuatu and Viet Nam also achieved the MDG-7 target in urban areas; however, as the 1990 values were higher, the relative gains in these countries were less (between 2 and 11 percentage points). Between 1990 and 2008, the proportion of the rural population with access to improved water sources increased by 19 percentage points from 64% to 83%, this is more than a 50% reduction in the proportion of the rural population without access. Nonetheless, access in rural areas remains 13 percentage points less than that in urban areas, despite several initiatives to shorten the gap. In all the subregions excepting the Pacific, more than 80% of rural inhabitants have access to improved water sources; and in the Pacific all countries except Papua New Guinea (33%), Vanuatu (79%) and Solomon Islands (65%) meet the same criteria. Impressive gains have been observed in many Asia-Pacific countries. In China alone, access to improved water sources in rural areas increased from 56% in 1990 to 82% in 2008. In the same period, Mongolia increased the access rate from 27% to 49%. In South-East Asia, Viet Nam has taken the lead by increasing the access rate from 51% in 1990 to 92% in 2008.

Access to basic sanitation facilities
The year 2008 was named the International Year of Sanitation in order to emphasize the importance and value to health, the economy and the environment of having adequate access to basic sanitation. Massive campaigns were launched to develop and distribute lowest-cost technologies that would dispose of excreta and sullage, hygienically and enable communities of users to live in clean and healthy environments. The drive for sanitation has particular relevance for Asia; home to 70% of the world’s 1.1 billion people who defecate in the open (58% are in India alone).2 From 1990 to 2008, the global proportion of people with access to improved sanitation facilities increased from 53% to 61%; however,

over that same time period the number of people lacking access to improved sanitation increased from 2.50 billion to 2.63 billion. Thus, the world population is growing faster than the delivery of improved sanitation services.

proportion of people with access to basic sanitation services between 1990 and 2008. Myanmar and Viet Nam made the greatest leap over that period; from a 23% access rate to 81% in Myanmar and from 35% to 75% in Viet Nam. The increasing urban Asian and Pacific population and the continued slum growth may put the achievement of the MDG-7 sanitation target in jeopardy. Between 1990 and 2008, basic sanitation access in the region’s urban locations increased by only 3 percentage points. With an urban population growth rate that is increasing faster than the sanitation access rate, the region regressed in the number of urban inhabitants with improved sanitation services. From 1990 to 2008, the Asia-Pacific urban population lacking access to improved sanitation increased by 167 million. Progress in increasing the rate of access has been slow in all subregions except South-East Asia, which made a gain of 12 percentage points in the access rate over the past two decades. In 2008, Bangladesh, China, India and Nepal showed urban improved sanitation access rates below 60%. In rural areas, Asian and Pacific countries have increased the proportion of those with access to improved sanitation. From 30% in 1990 and 38% in 2000, access by the rural population to improved sanitation increased to 43% in 2008, 2% shy of the global average. Over that period, South-East Asia achieved the greatest rural sanitation rate increase of 26 percentage points; followed by East and North-East Asia at 13 and South and South-West Asia at 14. Although South and South-West Asia have shown an

The Asia-Pacific region has made more progress toward halving the proportion of people without improved sanitation than any other region. From 42% in 1990, Asia and the Pacific had by 2008 increased its proportion of people with access to improved sanitation to 54%, which corresponds to a decrease of 20% in the proportion of people without improved sanitation. Over the same period, the number of people in the Asia-Pacific lacking access to improved sanitation fell from 1.88 billion to 1.86 billion. South and South-West Asia lag behind in providing improved sanitation facilities; in 2008, the proportion of the population with access to improved sanitation was an abysmal 40%. The number of people lacking access to improved sanitation grew by 126 million from 1990 to 2008. The increase was driven primarily by the high population growth rate in tandem with the low delivery rate of sanitation improvements. The Pacific subregion regressed from an 88% provision rate in 1990 to 85% in 2008. Similar to the access to improved water sources, the poor performance in the Pacific was primarily due to the decrease in access in Papua New Guinea (47% to 45%) coupled with Papua New Guinea’s rising share in the subregional population. South-East Asia continues to make gains in providing access to improved sanitation. The subregion increased, by 25 percentage points, the

and Pakistan achieved rural sanitation coverage rates of only 30%, 21%, 27% and 29%, respectively, in 2008. With respect to achieving the MDG-7 sanitation target, the current trend is not promising.

Still a long road ahead
Despite the clear health, economic and environmental benefits of safe water and hygienic sanitation facilities, the Asia-Pacific region is still far from having universal coverage. Growth in regional coverage in access to improved water and sanitation from 1990 to 2008 demonstrates some progress in achieving the MDG-7 targets in Asia and the Pacific. However, rural access continues to fall short of urban access. Rural areas often lack an enabling environment that can attract sustained investments, both public and private for the improvement of water and sanitation services and facilities.

Women’s empowerment is a crucial step in achieving gender equality and thus is essential for equitable development. However, in most countries in Asia and the Pacific women earn less than men; have limited access to bank loans, land and property other than land; face discrimination with respect to education and healthcare; and are under-represented in policy and decision-making. Progress towards gender equality is occurring slowly and unevenly over geographical regions, according to the United Nations Millennium Development Summit of September 2010. If greater and more concerted efforts are not made, MDG gender equality targets might not be met by 2015. Measuring women’s empowerment is challenging. Tracking progress is difficult since data are limited and measures are complex. Women’s empowerment can represent a diverse range of concepts and outcomes and may vary widely among individuals, cultures and countries. Nonetheless, some of the key strategic and crosscutting areas of opportunity and capacity for women include education, economic empowerment, policymaking, decision-making and well-being. All of these forms of empowerment intersect with one another in creating limitations or possibilities for women to improve their lives. They directly impact upon progress towards gender equality, and thus development as a whole.

decent employment and income as well as to credit and control of assets. Lack of access to decent employment is affected by, among other factors, low educational levels, discrimination against women and the burden of unremunerated responsibilities in the home (for which alternative State provision is often scarce). Additionally, a lack of maternity-leave provisions may further limit women’s opportunities.

Participation in the paid economy
Part of the disparity in income can be explained by the different forms of women’s participation in the paid economy. Women are overrepresented in poorly paid positions and sectors of the economy and are less represented in the often better-paid industrial and service sectors across Asia and the Pacific. For example, based on available data, 47% of working-age women were engaged in the agricultural sector in 2008, compared with 38% of men. The proportion of women employed in industry in the region has increased only slightly from 17% in 1991 to 18% in 2008. Many working-age Asian and Pacific women are own-account or contributing family workers in “vulnerable employment”, meaning that their incomes are low, unstable and unaccompanied by social protection or regulation of working conditions. (Social protection measures are defined as those which prevent, manage, and overcome situations that adversely affect people’s well being.1) While vulnerable employment has negative impacts on both men, women and children in a household, it can be particularly acute for women and children because of the lack of associated social protection, such as, for example, maternity-leave provisions. As a proportion of male economic participation, female participation in the labour force has remained constant at 65% between 1991 and 2009. However, that rate is not consistent across

Economic empowerment

Economic slowdown in 2009 brought an easing of inflationary pressure in Asia and the Pacific, with the inflation rate falling to 2.6%, the lowest point in a generation. The slowdown and reduced inflationary pressure led central banks in many of the countries to reduce their discount rate.

Inflation
Inflation in Asia and the Pacific fell dramatically from 6.6% in 2008 to 2.6% in 2009. Worldwide, inflation dropped from 5.1% to 1.5% in 2009 as a result of the sharp decline in activity in the global economy, following the 2008 financial crisis in the developed countries. The financial crisis weakened demand for exports to the United States and Europe and caused GDP growth to slow markedly in most Asian and Pacific countries. The year 2009 brought deflation to Cambodia, China, Japan and Thailand. In 2008 and 2009, the sharpest declines in price inflation rates occurred in Cambodia and Myanmar. India and Nepal were the only countries in the region that saw increases in inflation rate during 2009. Throughout developing countries in the Asia-Pacific region, food prices tend to have direct and indirect impacts on inflation. Food purchases constitute 30% to 40% of the average consumption basket in many developing countries. Any significant food-price increases, due to drought, flooding or other factors, immediately push inflation upward. Less directly, rising food prices also cause unskilled wages to rise and thus further add to cost-push pressures. After the large increase in food prices in 2008, the economic slowdown in 2009 brought an easing of food-price pressures that translated into reductions in inflation across the region in 2009. In East and North-East Asia, deflation of 0.7% replaced inflation of 3.2% over the 2008 and 2009 biennium, the outcome of price declines during 2009 in both China and Japan (0.7% and

1.4%, respectively) that followed increases during the previous year (5.9% and 1.4%, respectively). In South-East Asia, inflationary pressures abated substantially from 9.7% to 3.4%. South-East Asia includes the customarily low-inflation countries of Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand as well as the relatively high-inflation countries of Cambodia, Myanmar, Indonesia and Viet Nam; hence, the subregion includes a highly mixed group of countries (in terms of inflation levels).

South and South-West Asia, the subregion historically most prone to inflation, experienced a more modest decline in inflation from 12.0% to 9.8%, which put it back roughly to the rate of price increases experienced between 2004 and 2007. The easing of price pressures was particularly evident in the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Maldives, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. North and Central Asia generally experienced a less dramatic decline in inflation in 2009 compared with that of 2008. The largest economy in the subregion, the Russian Federation, experienced a slight decline in inflation from 14% to 12%. Inflation in the Pacific fell from a moderate 4.4% to a low 1.9%. The Pacific includes a highly diverse range of countries that includes Australia and New Zealand as well as the Pacific Island developing economies.

their discount rates from 6.7% to 3.3% and 5.0% to 2.5%, respectively, while Japan held its discount rate steady at 0.3%. Discount rate changes are primarily determined by the central bank or another authorized agency using two main considerations: 1) the pace of economic growth in the country; and 2) the presence of inflationary pressures. Even if the central bank is exclusively responsible for interest rate policy, as is the case with most developed and some developing countries, the central bank must inevitably weigh its decisions in light of the inflationary environment; and the level of economic activity in the country. Although economic growth and inflationary pressures automatically interact, yet in some instances, difficult policy trade-offs may be involved. Central banks could be faced with having to decide whether raising the discount rate as a means of reducing inflation might in turn lead to a reduction in economic growth. This consideration depends upon the prevailing sociopolitical situation. Some societies (and Governments) can accept the possibility of high rates of inflation, while other societies are highly opposed to high inflation. A variety of other factors may also be taken into consideration when determining the interest rates, such as the size of the fiscal deficit, the cost of servicing it and the electoral timetable. Decision-makers must consider the time lag related to monetary policy. Effective action related to interest rates can be better developed when all requisite information is available. Thus, decision-makers may decide to act only when they have a clear picture of both the future course for inflation and the level of economic activity. The balance between acting quickly and waiting to have a clear picture is also weighed by decision-makers. Some of the information that helps develop monetary policy is the existence of slack or spare capacity in the economy, such as capacity utilization in manufacturing and the level and structure of unemployment.

Interest rates
In 2009, economic growth in Asia and Pacific contracted from 3.1% in 2008 to 0.5% in 2009 with large variations across countries and subregions. As the pace of economic growth slowed, the central bank discount rate came down in 20 of the 30 countries for which data are available, and stayed constant in the other 10. These reductions are likely the product of monetary action taken by central banks and governments in response to the financial crisis. The most significant reductions were in Turkey, Azerbaijan and Kyrgyzstan. The developed countries of Australia and New Zealand reduced

Many Asian and Pacific currencies have been affected by turmoil in global exchange rates that began with the weakening of the United States dollar in 2008; however, as the weakening of the United States dollar eased somewhat in 2010 the Asia-Pacific currencies may by now have more stability. A few countries experienced further upward pressure (9 countries had depreciation of 1.0% or more) on their exchange rates vis-à-vis the United States dollar in 2010. Depreciation may occur for a mixture of reasons related to the economic environment (weak or stagnant exports, high imports, budget deficits and/or inflation) and the non-economic environment (primarily political uncertainty). Most exchangerate depreciations in the Asia-Pacific region were relatively small and could, in fact, be attributed to changes in short-term market sentiment.

The exchange rates of Azerbaijan; Kazakhstan; Hong Kong, China; Macao, China; Maldives; and Solomon Islands, remained essentially unchanged against the United States dollar in 2010. Azerbaijan and Kazakhstan are oil producers and exporters that operate with an explicit dollar peg, like other oil-exporting countries. Hong Kong, China, and Macao, China, Maldives maintain quasi-fixed pegs between their currencies and the United States dollar and, hence, experienced no change in 2010. Solomon Islands has a free-float currency that has depreciated against the US dollar over time; however, in 2010 it was coincidentally unchanged against the dollar. The Federated States of Micronesia is the only Asia-Pacific country to use the US dollar as its national currency.

Rising food-prices: the threat of inflation and impacts on the poor
Inflation, interest rates and exchange rates can be described as benign in the current Asian and Pacific economic environment. Inflation is holding at around 4% and interest rates are on the low side. Most exchange-rate fluctuations in the region result from instability in the financial markets of the developed countries (the succession of sovereign debt crises in a few EU countries and weakness of the United States dollar). However, the current regional stability could deteriorate and inflation resurge during 2011 – the potential cause being a considerable rise in food prices. In that case the policy focus in many countries would inevitably shift from supporting development to fighting inflation. The Asia-Pacific region, and the rest of the world, is in the throes of food price increases. According to the OECD and FAO, the wheat and coarse grain prices are expected to rise by 15-40% (in real terms) by 2020; vegetable oils by 40%; and dairy prices by 16-45%.1 Additionally, demand appears to be starting to outstrip supply as agricultural yields have stagnated over the last decade or so. Prolonged inflation has profound social and economic impacts, the most fundamental of which are reduction in food security, increase in poverty and shift of Government resources from investment in public goods to subsidizing of consumption. Rising prices of food disproportionately affect the poor, in two ways: 1) If they are net sellers of food, their income per unit increases – however, their net income may go down if they are unable to produce as many units of food due to increases in prices or availability of inputs for agricultural production. Higher prices of other goods and services will further diminish their disposable income; and 2) If they are net buyers of food, their real incomes go down, as they switch expenditure from other goods and services to maintain a minimal consumption of foods. In general, rises in food prices tend to affect the poor substantially, since they have less income to reallocate from other goods and services to food. Rising food prices are likely to prevent many of the poor in the region from escaping poverty. Moreover, as governments attempt to tackle the impact of higher food prices on inflation with tighter monetary policies, such as raising interest rates, economic growth could be adversely affected. Rising food prices therefore have long-term repercussions for the poor that go beyond its initial impact.

Over the past two decades the Asia-Pacific region has experienced a structural change in employment in 2009, 41% of employment was in the agricultural sector as compared to 54% in 1991. Total employment in the region grew by 1.1% in 2009, an increase that is just slightly more than the 2009 population growth (1.0%). Employment growth in 2009 was slower than the average annual employment growth of 1.5% from 2005 to 2008 and even slower than the 1.7% of 2000 to 2005. The slow down in employment growth was not unique to the Asia-Pacific region. Worldwide, employment grew by only 0.7% in 2009, in comparison with the annual rate of 1.8% between 2005 and 2008. Employment growth in Africa in 2009 was faster than any other region of the world, at 2.5%; however, between 2005 and 2008 Africa exhibited higher annual employment growth (an average 3.2% per annum). In North America, employment shrank by 3.4% in 2009, much less than the average annual employment growth between 2005 and 2008 (1.0%). The same trend was reflected within subregions of Asia and the Pacific. South and South-West Asia had 2.1% employment growth during 2009, higher than in the other subregions but lower than the average annual growth rate of 2.5% between 2005 and 2008. Similarly, employment in South-East Asia grew by 1.6% in 2009, in comparison with annual growth of 2.1% between 2005 and 2008. In the Pacific, employment in 2009 was the same as in 2008 (0% growth); whereas it had increased by 2.0% per annum between 2005 and 2008. In North and Central Asia employment contracted by 0.8% in 2009, although it had increased 1.7% between 2005 and 2008. In East and North-East Asia, all countries had either negative or small growth in employment.

Among individual Asian and Pacific countries, employment growth in 2009 was strongest in Bhutan (at 5.7%), Cambodia (3.7%), the Islamic Republic of Iran (5.3%), Maldives (7.0%), Nepal (3.1%), Pakistan (3.8%), Papua New Guinea (3.5%), Solomon Islands (5.5%), Tajikistan (4.2%), Timor-Leste (3.8%) and Turkmenistan (3.5%). The high rates of 2009 growth reflected growth in the underlying working-age population and labour force in many of the countries. In 2009, China with an estimated 763 million workers, India with 454 million and Indonesia with 106 million together accounted for 43% of world employment and 68% of employment in the Asia-Pacific region. In 2009, the shares of East and North-East Asia and North and Central Asia in total world employment declined, while in South and South-West Asia and South-East Asia they increased in line with their rates of population growth and labour force participation.

Labour productivity
An economy needs growth in labour productivity to expand decent employment opportunities with fair and equitable remuneration. In the absence of that growth, living standards cannot improve, since improvement depends on decent and productive job opportunities and growth in real wages. Globally, annual labour productivity contracted by 1.4% in 2009 with all global regions except Asia and the Pacific and North America exhibiting a contraction. Asia and the Pacific showed the largest growth in productivity at 1.4%, which is smaller than the 5.3% annual average growth between 2005 and 2008. Among the Asia-Pacific subregions, growth in labour productivity slowed almost everywhere between 2008 and 2009, the exception being in South and South-West Asia where it grew from 1.3% in 2008 to 2.4% in 2009. In South-East Asia, productivity growth decelerated in all countries except Indonesia and Viet Nam. In 2009, countries experiencing the highest rates of productivity growth in the region included Azerbaijan (8.8%), Bangladesh (3.5%), China (8.4%), India (5.4%), Sri Lanka (3.8%) and Tajikistan (8.5%). Those experiencing the largest contractions in labour productivity included Armenia (-15.4%), Cambodia (-3.3%), Japan (-3.8%), Kazakhstan (-5.7%), Malaysia (-3.9%), Russian Federation (-5.9%), Thailand (-4.0%) and Turkey (-5.4%). informal service-sector activities like street vending are common in Asia and the Pacific; employment in such activities is most often not captured in national statistics.

Employment by sector
Agriculture remains a major employer, although its relative importance is declining. In 2009, agriculture employed 53% of the workforce in Africa and 41% in Asia and the Pacific. In many regions the services sector is the leading employment sector, such as in North America at 80%; in Europe at 67%; and in Latin America and the Caribbean at 62%. The services sector employed only 36% of the workforce in Asia and the Pacific. These figures, however, only partially illustrate the importance of services in employment, as measurement differences often exist among countries and regions. For example,

In the Asian and Pacific subregions, the declining share of agricultural employment over time paralleled rises in the services sector, which in 2009 ranged from 29% in South and South-West Asia to 65% in the Pacific. In North and Central Asia, employment in agriculture has also historically been much lower than that in services; in 2009, services accounted for 56% of total employment. In the region, industry has the smallest share of employment, although the share of employees in industry has risen over time. In

missing values are imputed on the basis of the trend.) 3: Calculating aggregate sums and weighted averages Two types of aggregates are used in the Yearbook: straight sums and weighted averages. If the aggregate is a weighted average. missing values are imputed using linear interpolation. see the Asia-Pacific MDG Report 2011/12 (http://www. (5) If no data exist for any year for a country. Imputed values are only used in the calculation of aggregates. missing country values are imputed using the following methodology. aggregates are based on the original indicator (as opposed to calculating the aggregate based on other aggregates). if progress is negative. As population data (including 2010 data) and GDP data (up to 2009) are available for all United Nations member states. (Information from other countries is never used in imputing missing values.unescap. they are not published online or in print (with the exception of land area).org/stat/ statpub/mdg-progress-classification). (3) If a following value is available but not a preceding value. 2a: Imputation methods: MDG indicators For MDG indicators. If the aggregate is a sum. then the country-level data for that country are not included. then the aggregate data are derived by finding the sum total of all country-level data within each aggregation group. Two methodologies are applied for imputations: one for MDG indicators. which is only received by specific developing countries). but values are missing for some countries. if the weight is missing. no value is imputed. the test for two thirds of the total population or GDP can be applied to all indicators in the Yearbook. 2b: Imputation methods: non-MDG indicators For non-MDG indicators. the most recent year of data is carried forward. Weights have been determined by ESCAP for each indicator and are included in the technical notes. (2) If a preceding value is available but not a following value. and another for non-MDG indicators. the most recent year of data is carried backward.Statistical Yearbook for Asia and the Pacific 2011 Statistical methods International financing population (for social indicators) or the GDP (for economic indicators) of countries with available values for that year covers more than two thirds of the total population or GDP of the group of countries under consideration. as described below. then the aggregate data are derived by finding the weighted average of all data within each aggregation group. however. then the missing country data may be imputed to present a more realistic aggregate (the technical notes specifies if missing values are imputed or not). denominators are used as weights. the latest available value is carried forward for future values. 283 . For calculated indicators. The weights are not imputed. (1) If values are available for both a preceding and a following year. 2: Imputing missing values If an indicator has passed the two-thirds test. (4) For countries with only one data point for the whole period. For ratios. For data not expected to be available for every country (such as official development assistance [ODA]. The two-thirds test is applied to the group of countries for which data are expected to be non-missing (such as recurrent ODA recipients). that value is used for all missing years. a slight modification of the above methodology is used.
