Finding and using statistical sources

Statistics can be collected by international organisations, national or sub-national government agencies, non-government organisations and professional organisations or interest groups.

Consider :

  • What sort of statistics do you need and what is a likely source for them?
  • International statistics collected by governments and other organisations may vary in coverage and depth of content.
  • If searching on the open web be aware that statistics may also be collected and collated by interest groups or individuals so be a critical user of  data and statistics.  


Using this guide

Note that some subjects or searches will cross over several tabs. For example a search for statistics on an industry in a particular country may cross over trade, industry, economics and employment.
