Regional Organizations

A selection of organizations in the region that may compile and report statistics and provide analysis. Look for a Topics/Issues menu, or a Publications menu.

National Statical Agencies

National governments may task an agency with the collection and reporting of countrywide statistics and data. However, data collected can change, may not always be published, and raw data and collection methods may not be accessible. Additionally, data may be only available in print format only. National libraries can be a good source of information.


Most of the links below provide access to data. However, each organization also provides reports and analysis of the region as well, so it may be useful to peruse their websites for more synthesized or analytical reporting.
