The United Nations Statistics Division offers UNdata, a one-stop access portal to the many UN data products. The page includes links to databases and data sets in such categories as agriculture, population, industry, energy, trade, tourism, and more.

The databases are accessible by browsing, by keyword searching from a simple search page, or by selecting an advanced search from the “More” link in which limits by world region, statistical product and year can be applied. The “More” link also leads the user to the United Nation’s “Country Profiles.”

The UNdata site also supplies links to news regarding its reports and products as well as to country-specific data providers/services (as selected from the right column).
