Did you know that international time series data can be accessed for research? 

The UK Data Service provides access to a range of international time series datasets, which include the open data produced by the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development. As well as the data restricted to academia from the International Energy Agency and the United Nations. Collectively these data cover all countries, some stretching as far back as 1948. Most of these data are annual data, but there are also some monthly and quarterly data. These valuable datasets allows researchers to compare countries, or track a country's progress over time.

The webinar will provide:

  • the different types of international time-series data available from the UK Data Service
