"With its ‘3-click to data’ approach GlobalStat facilitates the search for, access to, and use of data collected from various sources. You can access a comprehensive collection of data in which indicators are disaggregated as far as possible (for example into different gender or age groups). Country level data is presented for the 193 UN countries and for the longest period available, starting from 1960...
The website allows for multiple visualisations of data. Tables, rankings, bar and line charts offer different graphical representations of the indicators chosen. Filters by period (selection of years) and by groups (selecting countries, continents and/or other entities) are available for targeted in-depth analysis. GlobalStat also includes export functionalities that allow for data, metadata and graphics download."
