Worldwide Economic and Demographic Information
IPR has spent many years developing extensive demographic and economic databases, covering all major countries in the world.
The databases synthesize information from numerous publicly available and proprietary sources. Here are the most commonly used sources:
The various data sources are aligned to common sets of definitions and classification systems, and are reconciled before they become a permanent part of the databases. The result is a consistent set of demographic and economic indicators that are used to support IPR’s Opportunity Analysis and Forecasting and Early Warning System solutions.
The demographic databases provide annual historical data back to 1994 for 224 countries, while the economic databases extend back to 1996 on a quarterly basis for 140 countries.
IPR also develops projections into the future for the key demographic and economic series, and these projections are used to support the forecasting we carry out as part of our client engagements. The databases are updated continually as new data is published, either on a high-frequency monthly or quarterly basis, or less regularly on a semi-annual or annual basis.
How do IPR’s Demographic and Economic Databases Differ from Other Data Available?
- The databases are developed based on the integration/synthesis of multiple sources, have been aligned to reflect common classification systems, and take into account source reliability.
- They use international standard classification systems, rather than proprietary or obsolete classifications, making it possible to do reliable international comparisons.
- A large proportion of the database is sourced directly from national statistics office publications, reducing the risk of picking up incorrect or estimated data being quoted as actual.
- They provide reasonable and carefully considered forecasts along all dimensions that reflect relevant relationships to economic indicators, as well as the interrelationships that exist among the demographic measures, such as the industry/occupation groupings for employment.
