About Data and Statistics

"Data" may not have accompanying analysis; "statistics" usually result from data analysis and include charts and reported summary statistics. See ICPSR's Data vs Summary statistics decision tree if you're not sure which of these you're looking for.

Hover over the "i" next to the links to view a brief description of the data resource. Some resources may have both data and statistics, some may have one or the other.

Data & Statistics Resources

You may also want to look at the resources listed on the Datasets, Statistics, & Resources page of the International Studies subject guide. It provides a longer list of data sources for international politics, individual countries, IGOs, and more.
