A QUICK GUIDE TO KEYWORDS IN
UNITED NATIONS STATISTICAL TITLES

Statistical publications with a high standard of international comparability are among the most frequently used of UN titles. A number of these are issued as part of Category XVII in the UN Sales Publications.
(See the "Quick Guide to Categories of UN Sales Publications.") The following list will give a keyword approach to finding titles within the XVII's. In addition, other UN Sales Publications are noted by their Category, and both UN and Specialized Agency titles are noted for both serials and yearbooks of special importance in international statistical work.

[Notes: Any "Category" not further identified is within the UN Sales Publications. Additionally, while the current volume is given below for many titles, Princeton's holdings usually are complete back to the beginning of the title's publication, either within the cataloged collection, such as (SXF), or in Firestone stacks. "SSRC RR" means the Ready Reference shelves beside the entrance.]
