Improved Access to UN Data & Statistics Database

Most people are probably thinking about hitting the beach rather than great resources to find data and statistics. However, at the OC library our business librarian has been busy scouting out great resources for students. Recently we added a new database called UNdata to our library website. It can be found on the A-Z articles page of the website, as well as a number of subject specific pages (Business, Environment, Political Science, Criminology, Health, Social Science, and Technologies).

The UNdata database is an access system to all databases partnered with the United Nations. The site brings UN statistical databases to users through a single entry point. The site contains more than 60 million data points covering a wide range of subjects. You can find statistics from the WHO, get country specific data, access specific data updates from international organizations, and more!

This database is freely available on the web, and requires no login information. Access it from home, campus, even on your phone! Statistics can be exported to your computer, or view results as you go, it is up to you.

Unique features include: Country Profiles, Advanced Search, Glossaries, search and download statistical resources within the UN system using a keyword or advanced search.

Subject Areas: Agriculture, Crime, Education, Employment, Energy, Environment, Health, HIV/AIDS, Human Development, Industry, Information and Communication Technology, National Accounts, Population, Refugees, Tourism, Trade, as well as the Millennium Development Goals indicators.
