GlobalStat adopts a ‘beyond GDP’ approach and presents statistical data on economic, environmental, political, social, societal, and cultural performance of nations. It enables the user to develop interlinked views on diverse phenomena, to assess the performance of nation states over time, to gain insight into the many dimensions of policy challenges related to globalisation, to interconnect processes of globalisation and human development, and to be informed about human well-being and the quality of life around the world. Country level data is presented for the 193 UN countries and for the longest period available, starting from 1960. The website allows for multiple visualisations of data. Tables, rankings, bar and line charts offer different graphical representations of the indicators chosen. Filters by period (selection of years) and by groups (selecting countries, continents and/or other entities) are available for targeted in-depth analysis. GlobalStat also includes export functionalities that allow for data, metadata and graphics download.
