International data

Key data about countries

Our international macrodata contain socio-economic time series data aggregated to a country or regional level for a range of countries over a substantial time period.

Many of the databanks are the current releases of the major statistical publications produced by intergovernmental organisations such as the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and International Energy Agency.
