About Statistical Resources Online
This research guide provides links to some of the best online sources for international statistical information. The resources have been reviewed and selected by Library Network research librarians for use by World Bank Group and IMF staff. Most are free Internet resources, but we have also included commercial databases accessible through paid site licences, with access restricted to IMF and/or Bank Group staff on an institution-wide basis. Resources that are accessible only to certain departments or individuals are not included in this list. The resource title links should take you directly to substantive databases or tables, where you can search for and/or download data.

The list generally includes databases from private companies, banks, and international groups and organizations. Resources from individual country governments are not yet included - with the exception of international data provided by the United States. We hope to broaden the scope of the list soon to include the statistical agencies of more countries. Lists of country statistical agency web sites can be found on our Internet Resources page, under the heading Statistical Resources.

The list is generated from the JOLIS Library Catalog. To view the catalog record for a specific resource, click on the JOLIS icon next to the title.

If it's not on the Statistical Resources Online list:

  • Search the JOLIS Library Catalog to find out if the resource is available in print or CD-ROM format at one or more of the Bank and Fund libraries.
  • Ask a Librarian to help locate or access a statistical resource. Librarians can search additional databases for you.
