Set up in 1966, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) now has 170 member states and became a United Nations agency in 1985. It aims to help developing countries and countries with economies in transition in their fight against marginalisation by promoting industrialisation throughout the developing world.

We provide access to the UNIDO Industrial Statistics and Industrial Demand Supply databases that cover employment and trade worldwide, broken down by country and manufacturing sector; data that can be used to analyse patterns of growth, structural change, industrial performance and employment by gender and sector worldwide.
