For over 50 years, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has been one of the world's largest and most reliable sources of comparable statistics and economic and social data. As well as collecting data, OECD monitors trends, analyses and forecasts economic developments, and researches social changes or evolving patterns in trade, environment, health, agriculture, technology, taxation and more.
The OECD iLibrary is the global knowledge base for OECD's data and analysis. It contains all books and papers published since 1998, as well as a vast collection of statistics, with data going back to the early 1960s and often covering more than 80 countries. Users can search and click directly to chapters, articles, books, tables, databases and more. These content items are available in different formats and languages. As one of the most comprehensive online resources on the world economy, society, education and environment, the OECD iLibrary is a powerful tool for people working at academic institutions, in the private sector, and at governmental or non-governmental organisations.
The new OECD iLibrary platform, launched in July 2014, includes the following updates and improvements:
