    There is much discussion in progress about industrialisation and about developing countries, but it is not self-evident what exactly these mean. Conceptually the most useful indicator of a country's state of industrialisation may be the value added in manufacturing per head of total population, reduced to a common currency and to constant prices as required. This has been estimated by the U.N. Statistical Office for a large number of countries with regard to 1950 and other bench-mark years, expressed in 1953 U.S. dollars. Only "market economies" are covered; comparisons with the U.S.S.R. and Eastern Europe are only possible on the basis of industrial activity as a whole (incl. mining, electricity and gas), and comparable data are lacking for mainland China and several other countries.
