Asia and Pacific Rim Situation and OutlookEntry ID: USDA0029
Abstract: This dataset contains every table appearing in the 1993 edition
of the publication "Asia and Pacific Rim Situation and Outlook".
Note that Table 30 is available only as a WordPerfect 5.1 file.
All the other printed tables were translated from their original
format (Quattro Pro 5 for Windows files) into Lotus files. The
translation lost all formatting information and converted almost
every formula ... into a fixed value. Most of the Appendix tables
contained two "pages" -- a "data" page with numbers in a crude
format, and a "table" page carefully laid out for publication in
the report. Generally, the published table did not have room for
all the years of statistics present in the data page. For that
reason, and because the formatting was lost in translation, the
data page is normally more useful than the table page.
