Table on Number of Security Council Resolutions & Presidential Statements: 1988-2009


Note: Numerical counts say nothing about the importance of Council actions (one important resolution can be weightier than ten minor ones), but the ebb and flow of total actions tends to reflect indirectly the pace of activity of the Council and how it is responding to the large number of global crises.
