The indicators used to construct the league tables in The Progress of Nations 1997 include: access to sanitation; per cent reduction in under-5 mortality, 1980-1995; and women at top levels of government. Using the same indicators, the following table shows the progress of those countries with populations of less than 1 million. The regional standing of these less populous countries can be assessed by comparing the figures given here with the relevant league tables. In addition, basic social indicators, also provided in this table, can be compared with the Statistical Profiles on the following pages.
a/ Enrolment is derived from net primary school enrolment rates as reported by UNESCO and national household survey reports of attendance at primary schools.
b/ Several of the maternal mortality rates vary substantially from government estimates. A review of these data will be part of a forthcoming revision of maternal mortality estimates.
