United Nations Statistics Division

United Nations Statistics Division
The UN data bank on global social change

The UN Statistical Division is a section of the UN official website, entirely dedicated to statistical data. More than fifteen complex databases are available on-line, made up of surveys produced by the UN and by other major international agencies. They cover a very wide range of topics related to the overall activities of the UN and, virtually, all the regions of the globe, offering a huge amount of detailed statistical data, concerning demography, development, international trade, health, education. The site is not entirely free, yet non-subscribers can access many areas and view several data. The freely accessible databases are structured mainly by links and topics, while those reserved to paid subscribers are endowed with a comprehensive search engine, which can also be used by non-subscribers in a restricted version. The subscription fee policy is more favorable for developing countries, non-profit organization, and public libraries. Governments have free access. Fees are on an annual base; no pay-per-use is allowed. The whole site architecture does not appear so intuitive, mostly due to the scarcity of navigational aids.
