International Historical Statistics is an impressive and peerless collection of statistical data from around the world, covering a wide range of socio-economic topics. The collection includes data on the Americas and Europe, but also hard-to-find data on Africa, Asia and Oceania. It is a truly interdisciplinary product that will prove a valuable resource to those researching and studying Business, Economics, Environmental Studies, Geography, History, Politics, Sociology and Statistical Studies.

This new release now includes 260 years of rich data, collected between 1750-2010. Users will find the ability to conduct statistical analysis across both time and geopolitical boundaries particularly valuable. Data tables can be downloaded as ePDFs and/or Excel files.

From the descriptions it looks like a potentially great resource for our library to have - especially from the perspective of PG students and PG student applications (to tap into the ESRC research grants. Unfortunately when I tried to download chapters it came up with 'server error' so I couldn't examine more closely.
Potentially a thumbs up.
