Where can I find UN statistics?
Last Updated: Oct 04, 2016
Many different UN bodies create and publish statistics. The biggest and most comprehensive source for UN statistics is UN Data, where users can find a variety of statistical resources from across the UN system in one place.
The Library's UN Resources Guide, which contains links to various sources of UN information, has a page dedicated to statistical resources. In addition, the Library of the UN Office at Geneva has compiled a research guide on statistics. This resource allows you to narrow the type of statistics by theme.
There is also a global database for the indicators of the Sustainable Development Goals that is searchable by goal or by country.
