The historical data series were used to elaborate global scenarios underlying the projections in the forthcoming book of IIASA's Energy Systems Program, "Energy in a Finite World: A Global Systems Analysis". The series were also used to support the application of a macro-economic model called MACRO in the IIASA set of energy models in a study carried out under contract with the Commission of the European Communities.

The data base relates to population, energy, national accounts, foreign trade, annual investments, energy prices and labor. Part One explains the concepts and definitions; this should serve to understand the meaning of the variables and their use for international time series. Included in Part Two is a set of nearly 60 tables, providing an overview of the development of leading indicators over the last 25 years. Finally, in Part Three, the sources for compiling the statistics are detailed, so as to facilitate updating and possible expansion of the data base.

It is hoped that the historical data series may be helpful not only for IIASA's Energy Systems Program but outside the Program and IIASA as well.
