The OECD is one of the most important sources worldwide for internationally comparable data. It gathers, analyses and publishes key figures on economic and social development, covering a wide range of subjects such as the economy, growth, government budgets, investments, education, health, labour markets, energy, science and technology, the environment and development. Internationally, the OECD has an important coordinating role as regards developing and improving international statistical standards. In this capacity, it serves as a bridge between OECD member countries and non-members and in working with EUROSTAT.

A large percentage of the data is available to the public under the link:

The OECD is involved in the international discussion on improving the measurement of prosperity, quality of life and sustainability. Alongside methodological advances in the statistical system, the creation of a more comprehensive indicator system to measure prosperity plays an important role here. This goes beyond the measurement of economic performance and material prosperity alone and includes factors such as quality of life and its work programme under the links:

Measuring Well-being and Progress

The OECD Committee on Statistics and Statistical Policy (CSSP) is responsible for devising the OECD’s statistics policy and ensuring the high standards of OECD statistics. The CSSP is comprised of experts from the OECD member countries’ ministries and statistical offices. During accession negotiations and work with non-members, the CSSP regularly reviews to what extent the partner countries’ statistical systems meet OECD standards.

The annual OECD Factbook s one of the OECD’s most popular publications. It contains up-to-date economic, environmental and social statistics on 12 fields. These figures make it possible to undertake accurate comparisons between the OECD member countries and Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, the Russian Federation and South Africa.
