Statistical Data

 Key electronic resources

Key electronic resources for Statistical Data provide authoritative economic, financial and social data from a range of countries, NGOs and companies. Two databases are especially recommended:

Datastream is available on one dedicated PC on Floor 1 of the Library. It provides international financial, company and macroeconomic data.

The UK Data Service (Formerly ESDS) provides access and support for a wide range of economic and social macrodata and microdata, plus panel data from major UK Government surveys. Registration is required to view most of the datasets. To access data, click Login and then click Login to UK Data Service.
