OECD.Stat Adds New Features

OECD.Stat (, which was launched in December 2007, just released several innovative new features to its platform. These enhancements are part of OECD’s (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) continuing work to improve accessibility and use of its databases.

OECD.Stat is billed as "the single online platform where users can discover and access a wide range of statistical databases from the OECD." The new beta version includes a new browser, faster navigation, and new functionality to improve the user experience and options to compare and manipulate data. The new browser lets users search or browse for the exact data they require by using a detailed list of content themes that can be viewed or hidden to increase viewing space.

Now, each table in OECD.Stat can be customized so users can mix and match variables and combine data from different sources to compare and analyze statistics from several countries. Rows and columns in each table can be changed to view data in a variety of formats including dynamic graphs that bring data "alive" visually.

These enhancements are part of a larger project to boost services of the OECD statistics in the OECD iLibrary that will replace SourceOECD later this year. OECD’s mission for its 30 member countries is to bring together the governments that are committed to democracy and market economy worldwide to support sustainable economic growth, raise living standards, maintain financial stability, and assist other countries in their economic development.
