Overview

New Resources Celebrate International Year of Statistics
Major statistical associations and research firms from around the world have recognized 2013 as The International Year of Statistics, underscoring the value of statistical science in research, business development, and policy analysis.

Broad and Deep Global Coverage
Both of ProQuest’s new international products compile data from national governments and from international intergovernmental organizations (IGOs), such as the United Nations and European Union. The chief value of IGO data is that it has been normalized to support country-to-country comparisons. However, the IGOs do not collect all types of social and economic statistics. For example, statistics on consumer behavior, commuting patterns, or religious affiliations can be found only in the publications or on the data sites of foreign government statistical agencies. Hence, the value of compiling statistics from both IGOs and national governments: the nature and scope of reference desk questions are unpredictable.
