The following is a selective guide to some of the major resources used to locate statistics about foreign countries and regions, both in print and on the internet. These sources are both general and subject-specific. For sources of statistics in other subject areas, please consult CLIO under the appropriate subject headings.
Statistical yearbooks for individual countries are not listed here (with a few exceptions) - check CLIO for their locations, or use the microfiche collection, Current National Statistical Compendiums, the first item listed in the Guides section. Also, consult IGO Publications Ready Reference Collection for citations to specific IGO titles, many of which contain statistics.
