The 2007 CIA World Factbook

The World Factbook (also known as the CIA World Factbook) is a reference resource produced by the Central Intelligence Agency of the United States with almanac-style information about the countries of the world.

The World Factbook is prepared by the CIA for the use of U.S. government officials, and its style, format, coverage, and content are primarily designed to meet their requirements.

What’s New
– Country information has been updated as of 8 February 2007.
– In the Government category, the “Capital” entry has been greatly expanded and now contains up to four
subfields, including significant new information having to do with time. The subfields consist of the name of
the capital itself, its geographic coordinates, the time difference at the capital from coordinated universal time
(UTC), and, if applicable, information on daylight saving time (DST). Where appropriate, a special note has
been added to highlight those countries that have multiple time zones.
– The Transnational issues category now has a “Trafficking in persons” entry. Human trafficking connotes
modern-day slavery and this important new field will include information on the most egregious countries
(Tier 2 Watch List and Tier 3) as listed in the US State Department’s annual report.
– A new Appendix G lists Weights and Measures. The appendix includes information on mathematical
notation and metric interrelationships, as well as over 400 examples of standard conversion factors.
-Revision of some individual country maps, first introduced in the 2001 edition, is continued in this edition.
Several regional maps have also been updated to reflect boundary changes and place name spelling changes.
