Google Public Data

The rundown

Explore, compare and contrast global data, all in one place. Google Public Data is home to the world’s statistics, where you can understand an ever-changing world by visualising its numbers.

Finding reliable statistics online used to be tricky and time-consuming. Google Public Data brings together the world's most authoritative and sought-after data from providers like the World Bank, the IMF, the OECD and Eurostat, all in one place.

It makes big data easy to explore, visualise, understand, compare and share. It's where you go to find current unemployment rates around the world, compare salaries or the cost of living. And as the charts and maps animate over time, the changes in the world become easier to understand.

All the data charts and maps are updated automatically, so you’re always working with the latest information. You don't have to be a data expert: whether you're a student, a journalist, a policymaker or just an interested person, you can play with the tool to create visualisations of public data, link to them or embed them in your own web pages.

To let the data do the talking, check out Google Public Data now.
