Abstract: UNdata contains over 60 million data points with a wide range of themes including 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. Among the main data sources are the United Nations Statistics Division, the United Nations Children's Fund, United Nations Development Programe, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, United Nations Framework Convention oClimate Change, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, United Nations Population Division, and United Nations Industrial Development Organization. Statistics from other international organizations such as Food and Agriculture Organization, International Labour Organization, International Monetary Fund, International Telecommunications Union, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, World Bank, World Health Organization, World Meteorological Organization, and World Tourism Organization are also available. UNdata replaces UN Common Database (UNCDB) and provides a single entry point to broader statistical resources. In most cases time series are available from 1970 or 1980 and many series are disaggregated to show underlying distributions. Users can instantly view selected data or country profiles, compile graphs and distributions of selected series, calculate certain derived measures and export data in XML and CSV format for further analysis.
