Statistics and data


UK statistics

The Library has access to a range of UK statistical information, including a number of statistical surveys, and has a large collection of other official publications.

Many statistical series are now available on the National Statistics website and from the websites of individual departments (GOV.UK has an A-Z list of all UK central government sites).

International statistics

International organisations produce statistics for a range of countries, and publications of international government organisations can be found in the Library Catalogue.

The Library has the major statistical publications of the United Nations, OECD, ILO, IMF and World Bank, and information on other useful sources of international statistics.

See Official publications of international organisations for more information about foreign governments and international organisations.

Various types of statistics and data are required within many disciplines. We have information on useful sources specific to Engineering, Health and Sciences.

In addition to the information in this section, you may find our listings of official publications databases and statistics databases useful.
