German term or phrase: Größenzahlen der Erde
This is the title page of a section in a quick reference book. It includes things like Erdoberfläche, Länge des Äquators, L 132nge eines Längen-/Breitengrades, usw.

This is a pocket-format technical reference handbook, so the title shouldn't be anything too catchy, like Earth Stats, for example.
I thought of Dimensional Information on the Earth, or Earth's Dimensions, but the first one seems overly long, and the second one sounds too inclusive.
Any ideas, anyone.
Thanks very much in advance!

Earth Statistics
Explanation:
I don't know if you feel that "statistics" would be ok (since you didn't want to use "stats"), but here's an example that would seem to be exactly on point:

Earth Statistics. Mass (kg), 5.976e+24 . Mass (Earth
= 1), 1.0000e+00 . Equatorial radius (km), 6,378.14 . ...
www.geocities.com/Area51/Shadowlands/658
3/solar_earthstats.html

Another option might be s.th. like "dimensional data", or "statistical numbers", "reference numbers" or something along those lines.

HTH!

Thanks to everyone for your suggestions. Although I liked "The Earth in Figures" I decided to go with uel's "Earth Statistics". Don't know why I didn't think of that myself, since I did think of Earth Stats. Maybe it's time to pack it in for today?!
Thanks again!
