This guide does not intend to be an exhaustive list of all sources for international statistics. Rather, it seeks to make more manageable the research process for students and faculty by highlighting the most prominent public statistical databases and those restricted to members of the University of Pennsylvania community.
To the right are links to a number of excellent guides, most produced by other institutions, some of which aim at a higher level of comprehensiveness and others that offer an organization or orientation that many should find helpful.

Though its focus is not as wide as the Maryland guide, this is comparably extensive in its coverage of economic statistics. It also includes a substantial number of print titles. Keep in mind that the locations of print publications refer to the Princeton libraries. In the same way subscription databases listed here or in other guides might not be accessible to Penn students.
Northwestern University Library. Another excellent Northwestern list, this seeks to be comprehensive in its coverage of intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) and encourages recommendations for additions.
Far more extensive than the Northwestern list of government sites, but not maintained for nearly ten years. Still, most of the links work and it provides information on the names of nations' various agencies and ministries, as well as regional and local government and political parties.
