Statistics and Country Information

United Nations Data Access System (UN-data)

The United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA) launched on 20 February 2008 a new internet based data service for the global user community.  It brings UN statistical databases within easy reach of users through a single entry point. Users can now search and download a variety of statistical resources of the UN system.

“UN Member States on the Record”

The Dag Hammarskjöld Library launched on 13 November 2009 “UN Member States on the Record”, a new research tool which will dramatically facilitate research on the work and actions of each Member State, and make information more accessible and easy to find.
Based on frequently asked questions, the Library developed this tool to highlight the work and actions of each individual Member State and to consolidate information scattered in multiple databases to one user-friendly resource. 
This opens the rich primary research resource of United Nations documents to anyone who can browse the web -- delegates, Model UN participants, or interested citizens from around the world. Information available for each Member State includes the key documents related to its membership in the United Nations, statements made before the principal organs, draft resolutions sponsored, periodic reports submitted on human rights conventions, and more.
Running behind this new research tool are preset searches on multiple databases maintained by the Dag Hammarskjöld Library. A single click links people to the most accurate, up-to-date results, and yet also includes extensive historic coverage.  Full text documents are linked in all official languages of the United Nations.
