First published in 1868,Whitaker's is the ultimate single-volume reference source - packed with thousands of facts, figures, overviews and statistics relating to the UK and the world.

Whitaker's contains a comprehensive explanation of every aspect of national and local government infrastructure in the UK, full UK General Election 2015 results, astronomical and tidal data for 2016, guides to UK law, education and taxation, overviews of the water, energy and transport industries, essential calendar information, chapters on royalty and peerage, MPs, government departments and public bodies, directory listings of societies and institutions, reviews of the year 2014-15 - covering the arts, science, politics and sport - and monthly summaries of the year's news.

Whitaker's is also an excellent introduction to world politics with in-depth profiles of international organisations, the European Union and every country of the world.

Our dedicated team of both in-house editors and specialist contributors spend a total of 6,000 hours updatingWhitaker'sannually - this includes contacting over 5,000 people to update their own organisation's details, researching information from official annual reports, and gathering statistics and facts from the most up-to-date authoritative sources available. For last year's edition, one editor spent an entire day contacting individual departments of HM Treasury to ascertain the correct name of each minister's Private Secretary - information which is just not available elsewhere, including the gov.uk website.

Now in its 148th edition, the book is completely revised and updated every year with at least 60% of the contents - including maps, diagrams and colour infographics - newly compiled specifically for this edition.
