The National Accounts Estimates of Main Aggregates database consists of a complete and consistent set of time series, from 1970 onwards, of the main National Accounts aggregates of all UN Members States and other territories in the world for which National Accounts information is available. Its contents are based on the official data reported to UNSD through the annual National Accounts Questionnaire, supplemented with data estimates for any years and countries with incomplete or inconsistent information. Estimates are done when no official data are available. Data available include GDP by type of expenditure, Gross Value Added by kind of economic activity, GNI, annual per capita GDP and GNI, annual growth rates of GDP, annual shares in total GDP and total Gross Value added, and price trends.
The Observatory of Economic Complexity (OEC) is an online data visualization and distribution platform focused on the geography and dynamics of economic activities. The OEC data is predicated on both an Economic Complexity Index (ECI) and a Product Complexity Index (PCI). The ECI predicts important macroeconomic outcomes, including a country's level of income, economic growth, income inequality, and greenhouse gas emissions. It has also been estimated using diverse data sources, such as trade data, employment data, stock market data, and patent data. The PCI measures the complexity required to produce a product or engage in an economic activity.
