International Historical Statistics

We are pleased to inform you that your library now has access to International Historical Statistics.

International Historical Statistics is an impressive and peerless collection of statistical data from around the world, covering a wide range of socio-economic topics. The collection includes data on the Americas and Europe, but also hard-to-find data on Africa, Asia and Oceania. It is a truly interdisciplinary product that will prove a valuable resource to those researching and studying Business, Economics, Environmental Studies, Geography, History, Politics, Sociology and Statistical Studies.


Getting started with the collection

What does International Historical Statistics provide?

The online version follows the same format and running order as the original print editions, the three volumes are: Africa, Asia, Oceania; The Americas and Europe. It now includes 260 years of rich data, collected between 1750-2010.

It is possible to browse the entire International Historical Statistics collection via the expandable chapter links; this allows you to find the specific data you require on different regions without leaving the product page.

Alternatively you can search for key terms that you are interested in, such as 'student numbers' and this will return a list of tables across the entire collection which includes this phrase. It is also possible to enter the name of a country and this will return a list of tables in which this country is mentioned.

Using the data has been made easy as every table is available to download in Excel which allows the user to create and present bespoke data sets and charts specific to their own research needs. Users will find the ability to conduct statistical analysis across both time and geopolitical boundaries particularly valuable.
