The Statistical Yearbook of the League of Nations has been digitized by Northwestern University Library (NUL).

It was published between 1926 and 1944 and contains statistics on population, livestock, production, commerce, transport and communications, public finance, currency and prices.

From MADGIC's subject guide:

The League of Nations was established by the coming into force on January 10th, 1920 of the Treaty of Versailles, Part I. Covenant. The aim of this association of self-governing countries was to promote peace and collective security.

Sixty-three countries signed the Covenant during the life of the organization with the exception of the United States. The League was governed by the Council, the Assembly and the Permanent Secretariat.
