'African Development Indicators 2003' provides the most detailed collection of development data on Africa in one volume. It presents data from 53 African countries and 5 regional country groups, arranged in separate tables or matrices for more than 500 indicators of development.

Each chapter begins with a brief introduction on the nature of the data and their limitations, followed by a set of statistical tables, charts, and technical notes that define the indicators and identify their specific source. Included this year are new tables on HIV/AIDS, the HIPC Debt Initiative, Communications and Transportation, and Household Welfare indicators.
