What is ProQuest Statistical Abstracts of the World?

ProQuest Statistical Abstracts of the World is a collection of statistical reference books from over 40 countries with tables providing summary statistics on social, political, and economic conditions. These statistical abstracts are generally issued by the national statistical offices of foreign governments and contain country-level data not easily found elsewhere. Global and regional statistical tables are also available from the European Union, United Nations, and World Bank. If the exact statistics you need are not available, consult the source notes of a table on a similiar topic to identify the relevant producer and publication.

All tables are available for download in PDF and Excel formats.
