Faculty, students, and staff now have online access to the three volume set titled: International Historical Statistics

This publication is a long-standing, authoritative source for national-level statistics on demographics, economic indicators, education, labor, national accounts, trade, etc.

The collection includes data on the Americas and Europe, but also hard-to-find data on Africa, Asia and Oceania. The online version covers 1750 to 2010 (not all countries have variables for all years) with data tables that can be downloaded as ePDFs and/or Excel files. For a detailed list of content available by country, see the IHS Country Tables list: Office spreadsheet iconihs_country_table_list.xls

The latest print edition is available in the Green Library InfoCenter Statistics Collection.
