UNCTADstat Country Profiles
The Country Profiles are designed primarily for people who want a few simple facts presented in a straightforward, digestible manner. The profiles are generated automatically from the data contained in UNCTAD's statistical warehouse (UNCTADstat).
The Profiles will be of interest to economists or modelers, who typically want all the data they can get, and journalists who need only a few pertinent facts. For specialists UNCTADstat will continue to provide detailed tables.
The Country Profiles are tailored to showcase data that are unique to UNCTAD: trade, investment, Information and communications technology and maritime transport. Other basic economic data are included — such as gross domestic product and exchange rates — to provide some context for the data.
The current version of the Country Profiles includes data for 2005, 2010 and 2013. These profiles will be updated continuously to reflect any updates or revisions to the data and the references years will be redefined, as soon as all variables have been updated.
The Profiles have been specially designed to display on most of the current browsers. They can be accessed from anywhere in the world, using only basic computers and with limited bandwidth. Moreover, each country profile can be easily downloaded in PDF format.
