GlobalStat: Globalisation in figures

GlobalStat uses statistical Open Data to provide information about development around the world

The website GlobalStat uses statistical data to close the gap between rapid data growth and data use. More specifically, the website offers statistical information from a range of international sources, focusing on economic, environmental, political, social and cultural data to help quantify and measure development in and between different countries. Statistical data from 1960 onwards from 193 UN countries is available on the website and is constantly being updated to provide accurate information on different countries development around the world. The website is easily accessible, intuitive to use and is free of charge to enable people to get the data they want.

GlobalStat is one of the over 300 use cases published on the EDP. If you are aware of another inspiring use case, share your experience and knowledge on different applications using Open Data with the EDP via mail, Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.
