China Trade and Price Statistics 1988 is compiled to give a comprehensive and systematic reflection of China's development and achievements in the field of domestic trade, prices, foreign economic relations, trade and tourism since the founding of the People's Republic of China. With its rich information, this book will prove to be of practical and reference value to China and foreign economists; faculty and students of economics departments in higher learning and research institutions; and to foreign business people; as well as Chinese in Hong Kong and Macao who have started (or wish to start) investment in, and/or participate in economic and technical cooperation with China. This is the third volume of a series of statistical annuals being published by Praeger. The first two in the series are China Statistical Abstract 1988, and China Social Statistics 1986. Future volumes will include China Urban Yearbook 1988, China Industrial Yearbook 1988, and China Price Yearbook 1988.

Editorial Reviews

?Here are two more volumes in this "China Statistics Series" based on the work of the State Statistical Bureau of the People's Republic of China. As with the other two volumes--China Statistical Abstract 1988 and China Social Statistics 1986--current and retrospective statistics are provided through dozens of tables. Rural Statistics is divided into 11 sections: "Rural Basic Statistics," "Total Output Value of Rural Society," "Output of Major Farm Crops, Livestock, and Township and Village Enterprises' Industrial Products," "Rural Commerce," "Economic Efficiency," "Rural Financial Statistics," "Income and Living Expenditures of Rural Households," "Rural Production Conditions," "Rural Culture, Education, Health Care and Social Welfare," "Ranking of Regions by Selected Indicators," and "Selected Indicators at County Level." The four sections of Trade and Price Statistics are "Domestic Trade," "Price Indexes and Average Prices," "Foreign Economic Relations and Trade," and "Tourism." Although there is some duplication of data among the four volumes, even tables that bear nearly identical headings do not always present the same data. For example, table 8.17 of China Statistical Abstract, "Average Per Capita Consumption of Consumer Goods of Rural Households," and table 7.4 of China Rural Statistics, "Per Capita Consumption of Major Consumer Goods by Rural Households," both contain data for 1980, 1985, 1986, and 1987, but the former adds coverage for 1978, and the latter adds some additional categories and subcategories of products. As a rule, subject-specific volumes provide more detailed tables and categories of information. Future volumes in the series will cover rural, urban, industrial, and population statistics; in addition, there are State Statistical Bureau data volumes by other publishers, e.g., China Urban Statistics 1985 and A Survey of Income and Expenditure of Households in China, 1986 . . . most suitable for significant China studies collections. . . .?-Choice
