ESCAP Statistical Database

The Asia-Pacific development data hub

With over 1300 data series covering a wide range of domains, the ESCAP Statistical database offers a unique regional overview of socio-economic development in the Asia Pacific region over the last 25 years.

Various regional aggregates offer convenient ways to compare the region with other major parts of the world or to compare various groups of countries among themselves.  Data are sourced from authoritative data sources from the international statistical system (United Nations and related specialized agencies, World Bank, IMF, OECD, etc.) ensure a comparability across countries and over time.

The online statistical database (http://data.unescap.org/escap_stat/) is updated regularly (last updated on 26 March 2018).
