"Where can I find macroeconomic data (GDP, CPI, unemployment, etc.) for countries other than the United States?"


  • Bloomberg is an excellent source of international macroeconomic data. The shortcut CBQ (Country Directory) is a good starting point for any type of international research, and ECST (World Economic Statistics) will focus on macroeconomic data. Historical data on Bloomberg is relatively narrow and downloading options are limited.
  • For historical data, both Datastream and CEIC Data collect data from individual countries (central banks and other data-gathering agencies) as well as from third-party data providers.
  • International Financial Statistics Online is a web-based database from the IMF that contains national accounts, government finance, and other macroeconomic data.
