Small States in Charts

Small states, defined by the Commonweath as countries with a population of 1.5 million people or less, have a unique set of development challenges.

The Small States in Charts series aims to bring awareness to these challenges as well as advocating for policies that are responsive to Small State's needs.

These charts are also available on the Commonwealth Data Visualisation page
