Description: This product aggregates over 50,000 numeric datasets from international organizations, economic research firms, and national government statistical offices. This collection is designed to answer the three most common types of data questions in international research: How do two or more countries compare with one another across a range of statistical indicators? What are the social and demographic characteristics and trends in a single country? How do two or more internal regions of a country compare with one another across a range of indicators? ProQuest International Datasets seeks to satisfy all three; it brings together economic and demographic data at international, national, and sub-national levels. A key provider of sub-national data (aside from the national governments themselves) is Oxford Economics, which provides deep time series of socioeconomic data for over 2400 cities and regions in 62 countries.
